Design and Features
In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the patent application for the Planar lens, a limited edition of a 55 mm Planar T* f/1.2 anniversary lens for the Contax SLR camera system was issued for interested photographers and collectors. Its initial aperture of f/1.2 and superb image quality make this lens suitable for use in situations where lighting is poor or where is extremely short exposure times are required, for example, in available-light or sports photography.
Its almost symmetrical optical design and the incorporation of a "floating element" in the 55 mm Planar T* f/1.2 anniversary lens also allow it to be used with very good results for close-up photography.
The lens incorporates a floating system that provides correction of aberrations and ensures constantly high image quality at the entire range of focusing distances from infinity down to the closest focusing distance. Learn more
