Aren't these lenses supposed to be rare and erotic, or something? eBay 220898518731.

That is not the collapsible version of the lens, it is the first series in the standard Rigid mount. It is short like that in S-Mount.

I picked up a Nikon M, 1950, with a collapsible Sonnar on it. I'm sure the original owner was annoyed that Nikon discontinued the collapsible lens.

No, erotic was intended, as a joke. I blame my upbringing among a bunch of punsters and jokers. Also, an homage of sorts to banned RFF member FrankG, who still haunts some folks here...

Brian, thanks for clarifying. I wondered if it was the collapsable, given that it looks quite short in the photos.

That's a very early rigid 50/2. Less than 1,000 were made in the 5008 serial no. range. 5008 means August 1950. The first batch of rigid lenses started from 50080101.
