    In fact, Industar 50-2 IS a rangefinder lens!

    Some history: it is based on old rangefinder Industar-22 50mm f/3.5 lens, which (in turn) was based on FED 50mm f/3.5 (also known as Industar-10). And FED 50mm f/3.5 is a exact post-war copy of Leica Elmar 50mm f/3.5.
    So, in terms of optics and construction Industar 50-2 is a modified Leica Elmar 50mm f/3.5 from 1930s 🙂

    Have three of those, two black and one in silver polish.

    I purchased this little gem , and another Industar , the larger body I 61 – 55mm , 50mm F2.8 Tessar . The tessera is like a Zebra lense in finish classy little thing. The 50 – 2 is so tiny. today I hope to find something worth taking a picture. I live in a very un photogenic town. Oak Harbor Wa. Anacortes on the other hand, as Port Townsend is Alive with opportunities of great images.
    The Love of Rangefinders… a Good thing.

    Fine on my Pentax K5 as we have 1.7x autofocusing teleconverter which nobody else has 🙂

    Industar 50 also came in M39 for Zenit’s earlier SLRs, such as the 3M. The flange to film plane distance is longer than the L39 Leica screw mount, to accomodate the mirror in the SLRs.
