For provided by Tair-11 2,8 / 133 lens. Many thanks to Alexander Borodayko.
This is a small overview, as there is already a detailed overview on Radozhiv review Tair-11A 2.8 / 135.
Main differences Tair-11 2,8 / 133 from this review and the new Tair-11A 2.8 / 135:
- Different name. The letter 'A' in the lens name indicates the ability to use interchangeable shanks.
- The white version has a M39 mounting thread and is designed for SLR cameras with a working length of 45,2 mm.
- Lenses have a completely different body design. The black version skipped F / 8 on the depth of field scale. And white has no infrared shift mark. Black has a wider and more comfortable focus ring. White has a wider aperture setting ring.
- The black version has a retractable built-in hood.
- Different diameter for light filters. White - 49mm, black - 55mm.
- Different weight.
- Different minimum focusing distance. Black MDF is 1.2 meters, white - 1.5 meters
- Different resolution. According to the characteristics of black, the sharpness should be better.
Both lenses have a 20-blade aperture, and the focus ring in both rotates 360 degrees. There are also aperture setting rings and presets.
I don’t know why, but it was more convenient for me to focus with the white version of the lens than with the black. I used two black lens options and one white. White Tair-11 was sharper than its black counterparts.
