The wide-angle Flektogon OF JENA
THE HISTORY AND THE DIFFERENT VERSIONS OF THE GLORIOUS wide-angle CARL ZEISS JENA 2nd PART THE HISTORY AND THE DIFFERENT VERSIONS OF THE GLORIOUS wide-angle CARL ZEISS  JENA 1st PART  second part THE BIRTH OF OBJECTIVES CARL ZEISS JENAin the postwar period is constructed from 25mm wide-angle Topogon. All these objectives are characterized by an optical scheme with the center very backward and lens rear where so close to the focal plane to prevent their use on digital SLR. Theonly wide angle lens made by Carl Zeiss Jena in the postwar period for the reflex is a Tessar lenswith a focal length of 40mm and f/4.5 maximum brightness. Apart from this goal dim and poor  performance Carl Zeiss Jena is not able to offer in the early fifties no real wide angle lens for 35mmSLR. This is a common problem at the time to all optical industry, but that is brilliantly solved by the manufacturer optical Frenchman Pierre Angenieux presenting in 1950 the retro focus lens35mm f/2.5. in the postwar period is constructed from 25mm wide-angle Topogon.

The diagram retrofocus lens is similar to that of a telephoto lens reversed, with the optical center of the lens and Tergal sufficiently far from the focal plane to allow the housing of the movingmirror. The Flektogon
The Carl Zeiss Jena is quick to assimilate the lesson Angenieux and realized in 1954 its first retro focus lens with pattern, baptizing inthe name Flektogon, a new name that has never been recorded by Carl Zeiss before the war and which serves to identify allproduction of wide-angle lenses manufactured in Jena . Among the early fifties to the early nineties the wide-angle Carl Zeiss Jenabuilds signed with the name in the focal Flektogon 35mm, 25mm and 20mm for 35mm and 65mm focal lengths and 50mm SLR6x6cm.
Flektogon 35mm
The first objective is a Flektogon 35mm f/2.8 to six lenses, is characterized by a shooting angle of 62 degrees on the diagonal and isconstructed in the versions with bayonet fitting for Exakta, bayonet for Praktina and with screw plug. In the first version the Flektogon35mm f/2.8 mounted the front ring of prediaframma BV and is finished in natural aluminum color. After the mid-fifties the Flektogon35mm f/2.8 is built with Exakta bayonet mount version with semi automatic spring diaphragm SB and a lever for manual re-opening of the diaphragm.

The minimum aperture is taken at f/22. In the automatic version, Flektogon 35mm f/2.8 is built withscrew plug with a minimum focusing reduced to only 18cm, with Exakta bayonet mount with external button for closing the aperture

The finish is black with rings of apertures andfocusing zebra. The new 35mm f/2.8 Flektogon retains the features of the previous version, including the diameter of 49mmfilters. The minimum distance of focusing is reduced to only 18cm and for this reason, the objective is sometimes identified as MakroFlektogon. In this version the Flektogon 35mm f/2.8 is built only with universal adapter screw 42x1 and Exakta bayonet, after leavingthe production of cameras Praktina. With bayonet Exakta the objective Flektogon 35mm f/2.8 is also built with black finish, typical of the production of the last seventies.

Like other Carl Zeiss Jena last generation, the Flektogon 35mmf/2.4 is built in the version with the electrical contacts for connection to the diaphragm simulator of the Praktica LLC and the versionwith bayonet mount for Praktica B with aus Jena 35mm f/2.4 Prakticar name.
