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 lens takes series 63 drop in filters which are held in place by a Series 8 retaining ring (50350), or the lens shade (40274), or ProShade adapter ring (40339). Like all lenses that take a Series 8 filter, conventional 67mm filters will not fit due to the different thread pitch.
