Product Information

Carl Zeiss Jena Biotar 1Q f/2 58mm red T 10 blades M42 lens.

Pre-Set version 1950-1954. T coated.
Lens shows few signs of prior use and is in very good condition. The lens was recently cleaned and lubed by professional - very good focus and aperture movement.  The glass is clean - no fungus, no haze. There is some small bubbles in the glass, normal for vintage Zeiss lenses. Aperture blades show minor wear and no oil on them. Lens comes with caps. Focus turns smooth.Nice high quality lens. 10 blades aperture.

It's surprisingly sharp even at f/2 in the center, with nice colors but heavy vignetting. From f/4 it is sharp and high-contrast right to the edge with a characteristic, softly rendered «swirling bokeh». With an aperture of 2.8, you can create beautiful, round bubbles, known as "cat eyes". So propertiesthat today's lens calculations no longer show and therefore often make modern lenses appear clinical. But that's exactly what makes it so appealing: anyone who uses the Biotar 2/58 creatively will have a lot of fun with it - it has its very own analogue character.
