Shabby chic is one way to describe this Russian old timer. The Industar 26M 50 mm lens comes from a long lineage of prime lenses manufactured by the Soviet Union in the 50s and 60s — made both by FED and KMZ.
The main fact that this lens is still around after 40-50 years after it was first introduced proves that there’s more to it inside than just its utilitarian look. The Industar 26m can appeal to snappers who would like to try on a vintage lens for a fraction of the price of other more high-end lenses. The Industar 26M 50mm can easily be used with Leica screw mount cameras. It is a fast lens that can produce sharp images and soft vignettes and also boasts a nice-looking glass coating – a little extra for those who admire Soviet-era craftmanship.
