According provided by lens Auto Revuenon 1: 2 f = 50mm many thanks to Oleg.

Auto Revuenon 1: 2 f = 50mm

Revuenon 2/50 is a simple Japanese fifty dollar. Has an M42 landing thread for installation on film cameras. As usual on older lenses, the 'Auto' prefix in the name only means automatic iris control. It's a pity, but there is no aperture mode switch on the lens.

On my copy, the protrusion with which the camera controls the iris is locked and manual iris control is available.

Body and controls are common for this kind of lens. The focusing ring is rubberized with very rough rubber or something rubbery, rotates 180 degrees. The lens uses the most common 52mm filters. The front lens does not rotate when focusing. The MDF is 50 cm and the aperture uses 6 blades. In general, everything is as modest and standard as possible..

The lens is durable to the touch, and it looks like the most common standard prime lens. The much more famous Revuenon model is Auto Revuenon 1.8 / 50 Multi Coating (MF M42).

The 'Revuenon' brand sometimes produced just awful lenses, the brand itself is not very popular, so I don't think that such a 'ordinary' lens is of any interest.

How to use with modern cameras?

Lenses with mounting thread M42 (M42 X 1 / 45.5), such as the lens from this review, are very easy to use on almost any modern digital camera (both SLR and mirrorless), for this it is enough to choose the right adapter (adapter). You do not need to carry out any additional steps to modify the lens.

The cheapest adapters can be found at There are adapters (adapters) with a chip that provide more convenience during shooting, usually chips are used to confirm focus and / or metering exposure, and form the correct EXIF. The chip does not affect the image quality in any way.

For some SLR cameras (for example, with the Nikon F-mount), you need to use adapters with a corrective lens, which allows you to focus correctly at all focusing distances. For any mirrorless cameras, such a lens is not needed, and the adapter is a simple decorated hollow metal tube with an appropriate mount.

    If you, Arkady, think that “this“ ordinary ”lens is not of any interest,” then what is the point of making such a short and boring review about it, for show?

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Everything is very simple, on the Internet there is practically no information on this lens. Now there is information.

    • Sergei

      What they sent about that and they probably write.

  • Sergei

    Thank you for your tests, Arkady !!! Always very useful information!

  • Alexander

    In vain you swear at the review, very useful information, even without text there is enough photo and if there is no problem with sight, everything becomes clear. Thank you very much to the author, really rush to look on the network for optics which is not the case and there is a shish with relish.
    Arkady continue in the same vein, a site is a godsend for hacked photographers, for those who are abruptly there is also something to look at because it’s not easy to know how cool you are.

  • Anonymous 1

    In fact, it is not uncommon when we suddenly find in magazines, books, conversations, etc. mentions of unknown brands of optics or individual lenses, a dumb question arises and hangs in the air: what is it, actually? What is good or bad, should you think about it or immediately forget about it? I am sure that such information is often difficult to find even in foreign Internet. There is also a person, a passionate tester, ready to share his observations “with the whole world”, which, probably, also sometimes cost money. So why are you grumbling, gentlemen, that reviews are boring to you. Don't read! Start a blog, write technical jokes, have fun! Why are you in a strange monastery with your psalms ??? Or do fleas bite you out of envy of Arkady's talents?

  • anonym

    Brevity is the soul of wit. The author said the main thing!

  • Maksim

    Why for show? So a person wants to buy a manual fifty dollars and he comes across this fix in the internet. He starts looking and gets ... ... here. Then he makes a choice for himself to take or not. Everything is clear and accessible. Arkady writes well and writes a lot for which thanks to him, and there are always enough whiners on the net on the net.

  • Blot

    Arkady Thanks for the review. And do not pay attention to the very smart.

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Meaningless and offensive comments have been removed.

  • Dmitriy

    “Very hard rubber” is vulcanite. I have a Flektogon 2,8 / 35 with the same focusing ring.

  • Vladimir

    Crap is always easier than doing something yourself! I do not like?! Your suggestions, what is wrong, I think that Arkady will not leave them unnoticed, but what can they answer to comments like “boring, for show, crap”, taste and color ... and everyone can troll and call others idiots ... Thank you, Arkady, for the review and in general for what you are doing!

    • Arkady Shapoval

      This is a common thing on the Internet, and in a day my blog filters up to hundreds of such comments by stop words, they write frank heresy with obscene language or regular spam. Frank delirium and insults, I delete, because these are not bright thoughts :)

  • Oleg V.

    That's right - Rockwell doesn't have any comments at all, as well as examples of photos in the photo zone, too, comments are disabled so that people don't shit. Can you turn it off?

    • Do_Oraemon

      It is not necessary: ​​D Comments in a sense can positively affect the relevance of the page, thereby raising it in the SERP. So let them be.

  • Vic

    Arkady is a real enthusiast, and for this he is very grateful! Few are capable of producing a new review almost every day. Even if this is a very rare technique that is not of interest to 99,99% of citizens, I still read with great interest. Thanks.

    • Do_Oraemon

      If huskies and advertisements were occasionally clicked, Arkady’s enthusiasm would simply increase to heaven. Help the project if you really like reading this blog, folks. After all, it will not disappear from us.

My opinion is this, the usual fifty kopecks, which are innumerable. then he thinks differently, analyzing the pictures from him. The material is not enough, in the sun it would be, but against the sun)). This is what we should write about, and not make squabbles.

  • Stepan

  • Olgertovich

    Good afternoon Arkady. I read your review. Very sad perceptions of the review and ess-no. Wicked reviews. Judging by the pictures that are attached, the lens copes with the tasks. I would like to see pictures against the light (say a bush shot from two sides. In the light and against the light). All markers are different in taste and color. But these pictures are quite.
