35/4 Zeiss Distagon for Contarex

35/4 Distagon in chrome.

The 35/4 Distagon was one of the lenses introduced with the Contarex system. It was considerably slower than the offerings of most of the competitors systems at the time. Although a 35/2 Distagon was offered in 1965, they never filled the gap with a 35/2.8 like the competition.

The Zeiss product code for the lens is 11.2403 for the earlier chrome version and 11.2413 for the later black blitz version.
