Review of the Vega-28V 2.8 / 120 MS

MC Vega-28V 2.8 / 120 is a very interesting Soviet lens for medium format cameras Kiev 88 / Salyut with 'B' mount. Vega-28V is considered one of the best Soviet medium format lenses. Outwardly, he is very similar to another medium format - MC Volna-3 2.8 / 80. The lens has a good combination of focal length and aperture, which makes it convenient to use on modern full-format cameras.

Now such a lens is sold for $ 150-200. This is due to the fact that Vega-28B is able to create a rather interesting picture. The copy that came to my review really creates an excellent volumetric picture with interesting bokeh, but at the same time MC Vega-28V 2.8 / 120 is very much afraid of back and side light. It seems that his lenses are devoid of multi-coating. The lens is sharp enough at F / 2.8, but still I expected a slightly different quality.

MC Vega-28V 2.8 / 120 is all made of metal and glass, weighs almost half a kilogram. The focus ring is non-rubberized and rotates 270 degrees, focusing from 1,2 meters to infinity. It's just a pity that such a legendary lens has aperture blades with a metallic sheen, which only interferes when working in backlight. The number of petals is 8 pieces. The main 'trump card' of the lens is bokeh and 'plastic' in photographs.

I would not buy such a lens for cropped cameras, and good bokeh can be obtained with a simpler lens, for example, some Pentacon 2.8 / 135 or Tair-11 2.8/133.

The image from the MS Vega-28V 2.8 / 120 is quite different from Carl Zeiss Jena DDR Biometar 2.8 / 120.

Conclusions:

As I wrote at the beginning of the review, the MC Vega-28V 2.8 / 120 is a very interesting lens with its obvious advantages. Now such a lens is difficult to find on sale, and the price is often overstated. MC Vega-28V 2.8 / 120, I would recommend only for medium or full format. On a full-frame camera, such a lens can serve as an excellent portrait lens.

    You Alexander said that it differs from Biometar 2.8 / 120. What do you say. It is clear that the drawing is different, but in particular what distinguishes it: color, ability to catch hares or not, sharpness ??? It would be interesting to hear some additional comment.
    Of course, thanks for the review, only the appearance of nature is disgusting, I did not even look at it, and therefore it is not clear what kind of handwriting the lens has ...
