35/2 Zeiss Distagon for Contarex

Distagon on a worn black Contarex Super, possibly a former photojournalist outfit

The 35/2 Distagon was offered to appeal to many photographers who used the 35mm focal length as their standard lens, and needed the extra speed. It was larger, heavier and more expensive than the 35/4, and as a result, was produced in smaller quantities.

The Zeiss product code for the lens is 11.2414.
