    The smallest of the 3 lenses offered for the Argus C44 rangefinder, the Cintar is a USA made one (the other 35mm and 100mm are German glass by Steinheil Munchen).
    A spacer (adapter) of 21mm is needed to fit Micro Four Thirds cameras.
    This lens is a bit softer and glowy compared to the Steinheil lenses but shapens up and becomes reasonably contrasty once stopped down to f4 and perfectly OK at f5.6
