Meopta Meostigmat 50mm f/1.0 is extreme fast projection lens. No filter mount, no aperture and no helicoid.
Was used in 16mm film projectors with 52.5mm mount (Meopta Meoclub 16). Can be used with modern DSLMs after modification (cutting the lens barrel), but can cover only APS-C sensors. Use without modification, but with restrictions, is also possible on DSLRs. Because of the very short flange focal distance of this lens it´s not possible to focus to infinity with DSLRs. In back of the lens barrel is a 4mm long M49 thread, which is followed by the back lens. With M49 retro adapters and various DSLR cameras only the close range is possible (about 50cm and significantly less).
This lens is ideal for cameras with a short flange focal distance (for example the Sony E-mount system or Canon EOS-M) and artistic photography.
