For auction is a Carl Zeiss Jena DDR Tevidon 1.8/50 lens in C-mount.
This is a high resolution telephoto lens. It is the older type, the heavy metal version. It is very compact yet relatively heavy, not a combination you see in many modern lenses. Its condition is good. The focus ring turns very lightly, with very little resistance. The aperture ring turns easily, the aperture blades are clean and free from oil. The glass is free from scratches, there is some dust between the elements. The barrel shows quite a lot of wear, especially on the filter ring and the edge of the brass focus ring.
The mount on it at the moment is the original bayonet mount, the type Zeiss called Video mount. Before shipping I will replace it with the high quality Yeenon C-mount. If you don’t want the Yeenon mount, please let me know after you’ve won the auction. I will leave the bayonet mount on the lens and give you a 20 GBP reduction in the price.
Have a look at my other auctions, I’m selling more Tevidon lenses, a 10mm f/2 and also a more modern version of this exact same lens, the light weight metal 50/1.8 Tevidon with Docter Wetzlar Jena badge. Also a Schneider Xenoplan 28mm f/2.0, Qioptiq Rodenstock XR Heligon 100mm f/1.5, Robot Royal Tele Xenar 90/3.8.
