For the opportunity Amar 4,5 / 105 review Many thanks to Briiissuurs. This is a very small review, as the lens Amar 4,5 / 105 limited potential.
Amar 4,5 / 105 - Is Krokus 4 Color N Lens 1984 production year. The lens is designed for medium format (film size larger than standard 35mm film or full frame). Therefore, the Amar 4,5 / 105 can be used on full frame cameras without any vignetting. The lens was released in Poland by PZO WARSZAWA. Usually, Crocus 4 comes with one more lens - Mikar / s 4,5 / 55. Both lenses are considered almost the worst for enlargers.
As Amar 4,5 / 105 Is a lens from a photographic enlarger, then it does not have a focusing ring, which greatly complicates shooting with modern SLR cameras. The lens is always focused at a certain distance.
To somehow use Amar 4,5 / 105 on modern central control center, I had to use macro rings. Amar 4,5 / 105 It has an unusual working distance of about 90 mm, so in order to focus the lens at infinity for Nikon cameras, I had to use macro rings about 5cm long. If you add a few more subtle macro ring, then the lens can focus on close subjects. Typically, lenses of this kind are used for macro photography.
Amar 4,5 / 105 has an M42 mounting thread to use on Nikon cameras, you need an M42-Nikon mount F adapter. For more details, see the section on Soviet lenses.
The aperture has the ability to take values from F / 4.5 to F / 16.0 with intermediate values of 5.6, 8, 11. The aperture switches by pleasant clicks. True, the lens only 6 aperture blades, and those with a metallic sheen, form the usual “nuts” in the blur zone.
The lens has normal sharpness at F / 4,5. Love very afraid of side and back light. Love has no distortion and vignetting. If much distorted, then this lens can even be used as a portrait lens.

Amar F / 4.5 105mm is difficult to use on SLR cameras. But, in any case, such lenses always give the photographer a difficult task in calculating various parameters, they develop certain skills. Amazing but background blur this crumb is much stronger than in whale lenses of the type 18-55mm, 18-70mm, 18-105mm, 17-50mm, etc. Therefore, even with such a lens, costing up to $ 8, you can squeeze a good, suitable picture. It is important how to take pictures.

Amar 4,5 / 105 - A very cheap lens from medium format enlargers. The lens is very compact, with good sharpness. I recommend it as an interesting lens for photo experiments.
