Hi All,

I am new to this forum so I apologize if the question has already been asked. I am researching on vintage lens optics, and wanted to know which lenses according to you mark a big leap in terms of lens technology. I would also appreciate if you count point out interesting facts about these lenses.

For example:

1) Carl zeiss ultron 50mm f1.7 This was designed as a bet by Trannier and is one of the very few lenses with concave front element.

2) Auto Miranada 50mm f1.4: The non E or EC marked lenses feature a highly corrected 8 element design and (afaik) only other lens in 50mm to share 8 element in vintage lens along with 8element Super Takumar

Thank you!

The first version of the Auto Miranda 50mm f1.4 is a 7/5 design. This lens has an arm and no click stops. The second version they removed the arm and added click stops, this one is the 8/6 version.

And, like you said the E and EC versions are 7/5.
