The Industar-50 is one of the most successful Soviet made lenses. 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 M39 and M42 SLR mounts and was installed (standard or optional) 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 “pancake” Zenit lens.
The optical formula was always the same (Leitz Elmar 50/3.5), the lens produced sharp and contrasty images.
This Industar-50 is the Elmar-type collapsible version. It was primarily used on the Zorki-5, but was also sold separately. The Industar-50 was also a popular enlarger lens.
