    This is an upgrade to the normal 50mm Distagon lens. Lauched in 1982, it includes a ‘floating lens element’ group, which offers significantly close focusing allowing focusing of 50cm to be achieved without extension tubes. A separate focusing ring is fitted to adjust the floating elements. In addition, it has a smaller maximum aperture (f32) and is slightly shorter in length.

    Front and rear lens caps.
    Condition details:
