The Distagon 50mm was introduced 1964 to provide a lens with a wider field of view than the Distagon 60mm. The T* multi-coating was added around 1972 and offers a significant improvement, in particular, for backlit subjects. In 1973 the lens became available in black. There are a number of silver T* lenses, though these are rare and not often seen. The Distagon 50mm was discontinued in 1982 with the introduction of CF lenses.
The original ‘C’ lens was supplied in both silver and black, with a Compur shutter. The black and a small number of the silver lenses have a T* anti-reflection coating.
High quality, dependable portrait lens. The lens has 5 elements and was one of the original four lenses for the Hasselblad 500C.
