Black INDUSTAR-61 L/D 55mm f/2.8 m39 ltm lens



Soviet standard lenses in m39 mount Industar-61 L/D  is a kit lens for thew various FED rangefinder cameras produced on Arsenal factory in Kyiv, soviet Ukraine.

The Industar 61 L/D is possibly the most highly regarded lens for Ukrainian Leica copies apart from the 35mm Jupiter-12.

Black I-61 L/D was the last version of Industar-61, produced all the way into 1990s.

It is mildly radioactive due to rare earth Lanthanum element content(not due to Chernobyl nuclear disaster as some think)

Originally for m39 rangefinder cameras(Leica Thread Mount) – fits FEDs, Zorkis, Leica.

These lenses are effectively used on modern mirrorless systems: Sony NEX, Olympus Pen, Panasonic G, Canon EOS M, Nikon 1, FujiFilm XE-1 etc.

Adapters will be required to use this lens on modern mirrorless / rangefinder cameras:

NEX adapter – for Sony NEX E mount cameras
Fuji X adapter – for FujiFilm X-mount cameras
Micro 4/3 adapter – for Panasonic G, Olympus Pen etc
Leica M adapter – for Leica M-mount camera

Industar-61 L/D(or any other rangefinder lenses) cannot be used on (D)SLRs due to incompatible flange distance – even if mounted focusing will be limited to extreme close distance.
For Nikon, Canon and other SLRs please consider m42 screw mount lenses instead.
