Rollei Planar 50 1.8 / Carl Zeiss Planar 1.8 50 | Vintage Camera Lenses

Rollei Planar 50 1.8 / Carl Zeiss Planar 1.8 50 | Vintage Camera Lenses | Vintage Lenses | Scoop.it
The Rollei Planar 50 1.8 (also branded Carl Zeiss Planar 1.8 50) is a 50mm prime lens that was manufactured between 1970 und 1995. Due to its long production run, it is widely available nowadays and one of the lost affordable fast 50 prime lenses. The Rollei Planar showcases the demise of German SLR manufacturing. Although the production of these lenses started in Germany, most lenses were manufactured in Singapore as the Voigtländer factory in Germany shut down in 1975 and the production was moved abroad. The Planar was the standard prime lens for the Voigtländer SL35 and SL 350 35mm cameras. Rollei Planar 50 1.8 / Carl Zeiss Planar 1.8 50 Versions The Rollei Planar 50 1.8 lens was manufactured with a QBM Bajonett mount. A few copies were manufactured with an M42 mount. Different versions of the Rollei Planar 50 1.8 exist. Although the versions are mostly similar in optical performance, their branding differs due to the restructuring of the companies involved in the manufacturing

Fuji X-Pro 1 with Helios 44M 58mm f2 M42 Lens | Damian Brown

Fuji X-Pro 1 with Helios 44M 58mm f2 M42 Lens | Damian Brown | Vintage Lenses | Scoop.it
So after scouring the internet I discovered this little beauty… The Helios 44M 58mm f2, it is a m42 lens and I picked it up attached to a mint Praktica MTL-5 SLR, on eBay for under £15. Bargain. So after a little play I have some sample shots for you to check out, yes I know I didn’t have a cool model to hand today, I didn’t get to shoot anything particularly interesting. It rained hard when I got to the city centre and I don’t particularly get on with the rain! But I think these samples prove a good point, this lens, as with many other great legacy lenses, is well worth a punt if you can hack manual focusing. With the X-Series cameras I like to use peak highlights to help me out. I do think the XT-1 that I have is better for focusing manually but then the X-Pro1 is better, in my opinion, than my Nikon D600 for manual focus. At least to me it’s clearer. Well check the shots out… look for the out of focus areas in particular, the bokeh. That’s the point of this lens..........
