Leica 50mm f3.5 Elmar lens
The LEICA ELMAR 50/3.5 was so good that it allowed 35mm cameras to make big prints as sharp as the popular 8 x 10" cameras of the era.
This is the lens that was so good that it established 35mm as the world's most popular format, a format which both lives today and which spawned the 24 x 36mm "full-frame" digital format.
Even the ancient, uncoated 1934 version I tested here works great. It's not as sharp under the microscope as the SUMMICRON, but nothing else is, either.
4 elements in 3 groups.
Not a Tessar; claimed to be a Cooke triplet variant.
Uncoated 1925-1944, then coated from 1946-1961.
The 1934 sample seen here is uncoated.
1 meter (3.3 feet).
