---Distagon refers to a retrofocus wide angle lens design.

Thus the wide angle Ultra Primes, Master Primes, High Speeds, Super Speeds, Standard Primes, Contax and Hasselblad lenses are all Distagons. Well some wide angle Contax Rangefinder lenses and a Hasselblad are Biogons which is not a retro focus design.
