Anyone here has experiences with that lens? Ifind it quite nice nice and it delivers painterly impressionistic images....

It is not as good as other standard West Germany 50-60mm in many aspects. This is not a lens for every one IMHO but I need one to complete my collection.

I have Ennalyt 1.Version. There are Super Lithagon 35mm f1.9 , Ennalyt 50mm f1.9 and Ennalyt 95mm f2.8.
So far I remember it is the first fast lens in the year 1953-1960 , IQ from 35mm f1.9 is good and this lens is very rare. Ennalyt 50mm f1.9 has same design as yours and has average IQ. Ennalyt 95mm f2.8 is also good IMO.
All the lense can be used with special helcoid.

Especially such ones are special to me:

Must be a very rare lens. Auction here is pretty high for vintage fast 50....

A nice one was up on auction on a local site recently, it went for around $200. Rare items sometimes go for less here. Like a Speedmaster 0.95/50 for $350. And a Pentax 67 II for $80, perfect looking but non functional. I should have gotten that one and repaired it.

When I sold mine (which I regret now), I got quite some $$$ for it; it went to Asia, no wonder I guess... Wink

The price of the 85/1.5 had dropped after I got mine. It seems the 50 is better at keeping its price.

Well, the auction has finished and the final bid was high.
What makes this lens so valuable?

Been watching that listing as well, two Asian shooters did clash on this battlefield for sure. Had he sold within EU only, the price would surely end up lower.

After all, one can always buy more budget-y sockel mount version anyway.

Yesterday's night was pretty nasty on prices overall, even for average Sunday situation. Bring the MF lens market bull run on! Whoo Turtle
