Meyer - Optik Görlitz Oreston 50mm f/1.8

Meyer - Optik Görlitz Oreston 50mm f/1.8

Produced in the years 1960-1971. Successor primoplan 58mm f/1.9 (5 lenses). Lens built with six lenses. It has 6 blades operating in the range from 1.8 to 22. Made of metal. Fluted in a characteristic pattern that gives it the name of zebras. It is very handy. Really sharp begins from a F.1.8. It's like the color rendering is wonderful. Lens shown here is the first model in the series which over the decades has changed design many times. Aperture is running smoothly, silently. You may be tempted to use it for filming.
