Classic lens of tried and true Tessar type – pin sharp anastigmat with 4 lenses in three groups, it was called to the scene when light is difficult and Helioses flared badly.

Recommended as a second lens for difficult light condition and as a general walk around lens – it is tiny and only weighs less then 70grams!
