Owner reviews: Industar-50-2 50 mm f/ 3.5

Period of use: 7 months

Strengths:

Small size, low profile. Works pretty good in low light siturations, surprisingly so.


Weaknesses:

Cause some overblown shots in bright ligh if a lens hood is not used. The small diameter ( 33mm ) makes finding filters and such tricky.


Comments:

A very good lens. A lens hood can be kitbashed, if you are unable to obtain one. If you prefer protective filters on your lens that might be a bit tricky. Your best bet in that case is to look up Kodak Series Filters to the appropriate size.
