About this item

The C Sonnar T* 1.5/50 ZM lens is the modern technological reincarnation of the classical Sonnar 1.5/50, the fastest standard lens of its time, for the Contax II rangefinder camera. It is fast, very resistant to flaring and unusually compact - therefore the "C" in the lens name.

With its well controlled distortion, the lens produces a very accurate representation of objects. It can take the same filters which fit the ZM wide angle lenses with 28, 25 and 21mm focal lengths. This is a very versatile lens for photojournalistic work in general and for available light photography in particular.

Key Features

  • Virtually zero geometric distortion for accurate reproduction of object shapes, particularly products and architecture
  • Reduces unintended focus shift with aperture variation for improved accuracy of rangefinder defined focus
  • Precise 10-blade aperture with 1/3 stop interval click stops ensures exact exposure
  • Wear resistant filter mount for long-term reliability in tough conditions
  • Highly advanced flare control that ensures crisp, brilliant images
  • Extremely accurate rangefinder coupling mechanism ensures optical precision, contributing to superior image quality
