This was the first ultra fast tele lens designed for sports photography.  Made for the Contax II camera system (can be fitted to Nikon rangefinders also) and realsed with great fanfare for the 1936 Munich olympics.  A real piece of history and still usable today or mirrorless cameras with a simple adapter.
