The first time Biometar the former East German people's communes Carl Zeiss
Jena had been produced from 1950 to 1981 is. In the German Read Biometaru, in
English and Biometa. This brand is focused as the main products of middle
aperture lens the company, a wideangle of 35mm, mediumtelephoto 80mm, a
telephoto of 120mm and three models were produced. Among them Biometar of
focal length 80mm is most often produced as a prime lens of medium format
photography, it has recorded a long seller over for more than 30 years. Was to
design a lens is Harry has been moved from Voigtlander company in 1946 Zllner

person who designed the Skopar to Voigtlander era, after the move to Zeiss Jena
also worked on popular brands such as Flektogon series and Pancloar series, it is
one of the name of the designer who supported the postwar East German Zeiss
Jena. Retired in 1965, he died in Jena in 2008. We have to fulfill the longevity.

By adjusting the thickness of the disposed concave lens in the rear group, it is
possible to control the specific gravity of the nature of the nature and Topogon
type lens of Gauss type lens. If Maze the thickness of the concave lens, correction
effect of resolution and chromatic aberration of the image center strengthened
the dominant feature of Gauss lens is improved, so that a large diameter can be
easily realized. Typically in the UK Wray (Ray) company of this type of lens is
there is a brand Unilite (Yuniraito), which was launched in 1944, it was to achieve
a relatively large diameter to cut the F2. Conversely strengthened the dominant
feature of Topogon lens Reducing the thickness, it is possible to enhance the
effect of correcting the distortion aberration and astigmatism. Since Although
aperture ratio is somewhat conservative improving the view angle characteristics
(resolution of the peripheral portion), a wideangle lens or enlargement lens, the
lens design that achieves high homogeneity is facilitated. Biometar and
Schneider's Xenotar of Carl Zeiss Jena is a representative of this type of lens
design. While Unilite type there is also a literature that is equated with Biometar /
Xenotar type and lumped together, design philosophy of Unilite type lens that put
the weight on the larger diameter than the angle of view characteristics are
completely different, both Similar one in which nonmade ( "lens all of the design"
reference Author Sadahiko Tsuji).

from the appearance of the prototype to market

2011 (19)

Biometar is a long seller, which was also produced 31 years from 1950 and 1981.
According to the East German ZEISS of production ledger, a prototype with a
variety of mount standard from 1949 (prototype) it has been made. In its first
issue in August 1949, production number is this 3. Focal length 80 mm, the open
aperture value was F2.8. In addition, in February 1950 of the next year is the
second issue of the prototype model has appeared six in the specifications of the
90mm F2.8. Whether the focal length is why only two kinds of lens different only
10mm prototype, is not an obvious truth though, it is carried out comparative
study of both products of 80mm and 90mm during the summer, and finally 80mm
F2. 8 was to be commercialized. This model appeared in 1950 autumn, first
product to cover the medium format of 6x6cm has been supplied for the
Rolleiflex. In 1952 for the M42 mounting and Exakta mount of 35mm format,
which was slightly smaller optical system it has appeared. In parallel with this East
German Zeiss has launched a focal length 35mm Biometar 2.8 / 35 (35mm format)
from January 1950. This wideangle Biometar has suddenly appeared without any
performance testing with a prototype, in fact, in the postwar type Contax IIa /
IIIa that both East and West Zeiss has been jointly developed, in order to respond
to the emergency situation that can not use the prewar Biogon 3.5cmF2.8 It was
of the product. However, it is immediately West German ZEISS is reduced demand
by that was to appear after the war type Zeiss Biogon 35mm F2.8, a discontinued
at that manufactured the only 1614 present. On the other hand, East German
Zeiss had already prepared a successor product of wideangle Biometar
alternative to this. Biometar developed a retro focus of the new wideangle lens,
which was adapted to the singlelens reflex camera, which debuted in 1952 in the
name of Flektogon (Furekutogon).

M42 MOUNT SPIRAL: Carl Zeiss Jena BIOMETAR 80mm F2.8, M42 / P6 (Pentacon-six) mount

In 1952 from 1951, it seems to have raised a plan to large diameter the
Biometar, prototype five with an aperture ratio of F2 (50mm, 58mm, 50mm,
80mm, 120mm) have been produced on a trial basis. However, sufficient
performance can not reached for either commercially not be obtained by this
aperture ratio. From 1954 through 1958, this time F3.5 and F4 prototype of
which was suppressed modest aperture ratio than F2.8 (3.5 / 80, 3.5 / 105, 4/80,
4/85) is tentatively structure It is. It is either intended to explore the possibility
of as stretching for the lens, or a rival product (Xenotar and Planar) was a
movement to combat what has been issued a lowcost product with reduced
aperture ratio to F3.5 at the same time Seem. However, none was never
commercialized. Continued raised are plans to expand the product lineup of the
aperture ratio F2.8 is from 1956, a prototype model with the four types of focal
length (40mm, 50mm, 105mm, 120mm ) is the prototype. Telephoto models with
focal length 120mm of which have been manufactured from 1958. Raised the
proposal to be in 1962 to expand the focal length, the two prototype models of
the product of 55mm F2.8 of products and of medium telephoto 77mm F2.8 with
a standard angle of view is the prototype. However, probably because the
performance of the PANCOLAR that have appeared around the same time was
good. Here also not commercialized. Whether the latter of 77mm model is the
prototype in any position to 80mm of the current product, I can not imagine at
all. Since 1965 Tsueruna Dr. retired from Zeiss, the development of the prototype
is not performed.

Biometar of initial (1950 1958 years) is a Kyodo made of aluminum, there were
two kinds of focal length 80mm and 35mm. Newly also change the design adds a
type of focal length 120mm from 1958, two variations of the aluminum Kyodo and
black Kyodo that Gokawa dcor to the knurled portion is prepared. Although
model when it comes to 1962 strange design with the projections on the knurled
section appeared, changed the design in terms of whether a few years it was
unpopular, has changed from 1965 to Kyodo of zebra. Is a product of the products
are all single coating specification of up to here, is from the early 1970s has been
remodeled to black Kyodo model a multicoating process is applied to the glass
surface. Production of the lens was continued until 1981. Variation of Biometar

if Kome looking through the peripheral image quality captured by the open
aperture Even what lens, resolution and contrast is clearly lower than the central
part, a greater or lesser degree distortion aberration and coma is noticeable. It
should be understood that if the design theory of notably the lens than the
deterioration of the image quality is the central part. However, the Biometar
draw the blood of topogon are equipped with excellent viewing angle
characteristics, absolutely no sense of insecurity even placed in the four corners
of the main subject. Major feature of Biometar uniformity of the focal plane is of
a very high. Is on the Internet has been published many Sample images taken with
Biometar and Xenotar. It is not a few things that feel a strange force is in it.
Composition that is common to many of are those that take in up the main
subject, sharp object is spread in the angle of view full of size up to the four
corners enough to hash, along with the threedimensional effect that produces
the blur of the background, in the words overwhelming force that can not be

but he of course, must have been used on that a good understanding of the nature
of this kind of lens.
Depiction design of Biometar is overcollection (overcorrection) type to
deliberately leave the spherical aberration. This correction technique is kept
small bulge of spherical aberration, in the open aperture at the cost of those that
is slightly more residual spherical aberration. Although it is possible to increase
the highest resolution in place to close the aperture 12 stage, the image in the
open aperture as the reaction is slightly sweet. The depiction design of Zeiss is
praised as the first class is in the place where it is exquisite setting that does not
feel a decrease in the resolving power even in the open aperture. Also in the
depiction of Biometar and its advanced technology we live, birth to wick into the
resolution a sense of softness of the appearance by the sharp change in tone, not
to completely feel the sweetness of the image. Resolving power in F4 close one
step from the open aperture is greatly improved, also improved contrast. The
interference of a certain image as refreshing. 2stage close at F5.6 contrast is
further improved, the resolution also peripheral portion is significantly improved.
Overall sharpness reach a very high level. Precisely to draw the subject to detail,
it becomes depiction was sharp crispy gradation change. However, it is not that
the shadow part would be burnt to a crisp, the tone is changing polite while
maintaining the smoothness. If the composition to put the subject in the center

to be the most delicious aperture value. Color is strongly yellow in it is the

noisy blur that lacks the smoothness in some cases. Biometar is no exception.

Image quality evaluation of this kind are carried out several times in the past in
this blog, but those familiar every time. Predictably with respect to this Biometar,
the image quality of the peripheral portion B is a very good result.
Although the central portion A sweet imaging details in the open aperture,
contrast is good because the perceived resolution is kept good. Resolving power in
F4 squeeze one stage is firmly resolved to fine unevenness greatly improved.
However, since the improvement of the resolving power at the center also
focuses to F5.6 slight, it would be sufficient to geared up to F4 If put the main
subject in the center. Peripheral part B image in the open aperture is a Moya',
lowering of contrast and resolution can be seen. However, not even be detected
is not observed distortion of the flow image by such as coma. Compared to the
results of a similar test for the other lens that was done in the past, the image
quality is stable at a high level. Contrast and resolving power in F4 squeeze one
stage is rapidly improving. In addition image quality is improved and squeeze up
to F5.6, in this area, it is almost the best image quality. In the case of using a
peripheral portion of the image to copy the main subject will be good to squeeze
up to F5.6.


M42 MOUNT SPIRAL: Carl Zeiss Jena BIOMETAR 80mm F2.8, M42 / P6 (Pentacon-six) mount

Most of sharp image was obtained of the three BIOMETAR obtained this time
instead of two of P6 mount version Strangely enough, was a silver mirror body
(M42 mount) early type of 35mm format. Because for a multicoating P6 was
convinced that good contrast, was surprised to unexpected results. Perhaps,
because no camera is adapted to the image format P6 lens, reflection occurs at
the inside of the adapter, which is considered to have lower contrast.

Good morning.
Last night, drunk and go home is now late.
In the meeting with Nikon of people, of the Nikon 1
you can hear and so the development untold story, was meaningful.
In addition, in the subsequent meal Association (yearend party), Mr. Sato of Nikkor
Thousand and One Nights story of the author, you can sit and Oshita's, many things
I was able to watch for an interesting story.
According to Sato, of habit Roh tar type lens
most of the recommendations is the Micro Nikkor 55 / 3.5.
Spherical aberration of this lens, infinity photographing magnification 1/30 times
until about, has become overcollection
but behind blur becomes hard, At higher magnification shooting,
become undercollection, also under field curvature in
order to become, it seems lens that is suitable to take thingy.
By the way, 55 / 2.8 is a high contrast images
that of a universal lens.
85/2, which is well Utsuru lens, the spherical aberration correction is
because it has become a whole to overcollection,
seems unsuitable for portraits.
Then recommended, 105 / 2.5
for the 105 / 1.8, correction of chromatic aberration is in scarce
(had been expressed as skip the gline.)
For example, in the diagnostic room or the like of a certain magazine, high evaluation
is obtained no, but
is that of the lens to the depiction of taste. If the reference, we hope. Maiyojon'nu

of the whole also dropped the performance of the center, and the M42size that can be
our best pitching in the 24x36, a small format It is natural that defeated After

out even while the same structure as the Rolleiflex 2.8GX, seems an element spacing
so that the best performance had been adjusted in the 24x36. If the 6x6 is inferior,
does not mean that, because the large format print magnification ratio is different,
there is no sense to the highperformance only the center, who peripheral is too fall
will affect the print, is that. The number of the MTF curve that has been presented in
a largeformat lens catalog of Rodenstock GmbH is, we measure two Toka four contrast
per certainly mm. At 35mm, for example Zeiss It is this 10, 20, 40. This is because the
expansion rate is different, will only become a center of largeformat lens that has
been designed on the basis of two millimeters a result which can not endure the print
even if the crop at 35mm. So I first would be deemed to be replaced store began to
use in the hype, complaining about the "delicious center" will have a very
uncomfortable feeling to the current situation that is walking alone. Even in the ultra
high performance, the center also be a level of lens to withstand the small format,
what by using in its native format, and personally I think. Of course, on which I was
well aware that the above will be diverted out of necessity, or does not deny that the
priority is given to the practical use. Genuine accessories, Pentacon and Asahi Optical,
Olympus, it has put out the Nikon also lens adapter. 19th century classical lenses,
peripheral Bokeboke, since the center only come focus, I guess there is that crop in the
sense that "peripheral can not eat," rather than a "delicious center". . . .
