The Rollei Planar 50 1.8 (also branded Carl Zeiss Planar 1.8 50) is a 50mm prime lens that was manufactured between 1970 und 1995.

The Rollei Planar showcases the demise of German SLR manufacturing. Although the production of these lenses started in Germany, most lenses were manufactured in Singapore as the Voigtländer factory in Germany shut down in 1975 and the production was moved abroad. The Planar was the standard prime lens for the Voigtländer SL35 and SL 350 35mm cameras.

The Planar is a very nice prime lens. It is a very good 50mm prime all-rounder lens which comes in handy for portraiture as well as landscape photography. Much cheaper than most other well manufactured 50mm lenses, the Rollei offers similar optical results and build quality at a much cheaper price than standard Carl Zeiss lenses.

The sharpness, even wide open is remarkable. Most lenses get soft at a certain point but the Planar performs steadily. The colours are cracking and the contrast is very good. I really enjoyed using this lens and was never disappointed by the results it produced.
