Industar-50, 50/3.5 Rigid, Chrome


Industar-50 was a very successful Soviet made lens. It was a standard or optional lens on practically every Zorki camera, from Zorki-S in the mid 50's to Zorki-4K in the mid 70's. The lens was also made in a 39 and 42 mm SLR mount and was installed (standard or option) on every Zenit model as well, from Zenit-S to Zenit-E. It came in different shapes and finishes, from a chrome collapsible Elmar-style lens to a black "flat" Zenit lens. The optical formula was always the same, the lens produced sharp and contasty images.

This Industar-50 is the newer, rigid barrel design used on the Zorki-4, Zorki-5, Zorki-6 and Mir.

  • Focal length: 50 mm, coated glass, chrome finish.
  • Maximum aperture - 1:3.5 (settings from 3.5 to 16).
  • The lens couples with a RF of any threadmount Leica or Leica copy.

The glass is clear and clean, the finish is clean overall, there are several blemishes on the chrome coating. Focusing and aperture are smooth.

The Industar-50 is shown mounted on a Leica IIIa (not included).
