Carl Zeiss Jena (Aus Jena) MC Pancolar lens 50mm

You are bidding on a manual focus Carl Zeiss Jena (Aus Jena) MC Pancolar lens 50mm f1.8 M42 screw mount lens.

This is the more rare version with Red number markings instead of the regular green ones found on most Pancolars on ebay.

I have used this lens on a Canon Digital camera EOS 5D with an adapter and obtained excellent results.

Both front and rear Multi Coated glass elements are clean and clear. There are some (very slight) dust particles between the glass elements which do not affect image quality and are normal for a zeiss lens of this age (I am only mentioning this because I want to be fair and as accurate in my description as possible)
Aperture works as it should with no indications of oil leakage (common on zeiss lenses)
Manual focus works fine BUT is a tad stiffer than a similar Pentacon 50mm f1.8 lens that I own. Again, I am mentioning this to be perfectly honest, it has not caused me any issues while using this lens but it is proper that you should know and bid accordingly.

This lens will mount on film cameras with M42 screw mount but most people will buy an adapter and use it on a Digital camera (like Canon, Nikon etc). Please note that such an adaptor is not included in this auction (they are easily found on ebay depending on your camera brand).

"Aus Jena" instead of the more common "Carl Zeiss Jena" is printed on the lens due to copyright issues during the 1950's and 1960's. You can read all about it here:


There is no reserve on this auction, the highest bidder wins.

Front and rear caps are included with this auction.

Shipping is a flat $25 Worldwide.
