Zenitar M2s (M42) 50 F2.0
supersize


Description:
According to No-X on mflenses: "Zenitar 2 series was developed as a successor of Helios 44 series. One year before launch of the last Helios 44 (44M-7 MC), S.B. Byshkin won selection procedure of new optical design and a few years later the first Zenitars (K2 nad M2) went to production. The first batch of K2 versions had resolution slightly over 70/45 (>double the 44-2!) and resolution of later batches had to be slightly lowered, because film didn't manage it very well. Resolution of final batches differs form 60/30 to 68/44.

E.Y.Rybnikova was responsible for the nice plastic design (it corresponded to plastic body - Zenit 412)"
.

No A-M switch: either "mod" the lens or use an adapter that depresses the auto pin on the mount like this one. The K-mount version is in any case the same lens.

There are also f1.7 and f1.4 versions.
Mount Type: M42 Screwmount
