Industar-61LD, 55/2.8, Black

Russian Industar-61L/D lens in Leica Thereadmount.

This lens replaced its predecessor Industar-26m as a standard lens on the FED-3 and all later FED cameras. The optical design was improved, and a new, Lanthanum glass was used (letter L is for Lanthanum, D is for Dal'nomer - Rangefinder.

This is the newest multicoated LTM lens made by the Soviet (now Ukrainian) photo industry. It is sharp and contarsty, with smooth focusing action and the aperture click-stops.

It is still in production by FED factory in Kharkov, Ukraine. The lens was also made in universal 42mm mount for Zenit cameras, its name was Industar-61L/Z. It was my favorite 50 mm lens for years, and I still keep it, even though I am not using my 42 mm mount SLRs anymore.
