W.Rokkor-QE 1:4 f=35mm


The 35mm 4 is known in two versions, that differ slightly:

The first version is a very classic designed slow lens from the pre-rotrofocus era. It features a linear aperture control ring with equidistant click positions close to the lens mount. TTL cameras require the lens to be used in manual stopdown mode. There is no aperture value read-in available to viewfinders, that have this option. The 55mm front is silver on the front and outside.

The second version is more compact. The 52 mm front is silver only on the front side.

Both lenses can be foud moderately on the second hand market.
