The M42 version of the Biometar 80 is a remounted Pre-set version of the early P6 mount medium format lens with simple coating in an alloy mount. There were no known later ( Black Zebra or MC ) version of the lens in M42, presumably one can easily adept the Medium format lens to any 35mm body with the appropiate Lens/body adepter

The 2,8/80 Biometar was developed in 1948. Mounted for Kine Exakta, then Contax (M42) and Rolleiflex. In 1956 the version for other medium format cameras (Praktisix…) as a new version was computed. KR
