    "In general, it is able to compete with zooms like 70-300 and other" XNUMX "in terms of image quality."

    Well, if you fight with three hundred like clubs, literally, then yes - you can fight. As for 1967, it certainly looks decent, but nothing more.

      Tair-3 will be better than modern lenses. For example, the mid-format 300/4 Pentacon and Zonnar are said to lose in quality. The Japanese nameless three-hundredths of type 300 / 5.6 are also far behind.
      So it turns out that for imputed money the 300 / 4.5 lens does not buy a good one. As an option, there is a Nikkor 300 / 4.5 cool, but the prices are not very merciful.
      The Canon 70-300 III zoom seemed to me even worse than Tahir, although, m. poorly compared.

        But after all, 300 per SF is essentially 200. And to use a 35 mm sf lens, and even more so on a crop, expecting sharpness is stupid ...

        Why stupid. Here was Uranus-27 - so it covers 8 * 8 cm. But at the same time, it should be noted that even on the crop it has a very decent resolution.

    I have 3A and 3FS (I sell the second, as an advertisement). and so, according to my subjective sensations and the sensations of yet another comrade, they used both the first and second, but different copies:
    - 3A has a better picture! both in contrast and in sharpness;
    - less MDF and any aperture value !! in contrast to the multiple of the full foot in 3FS (
    - but on 3FS it is much more convenient to focus, there is less shake from the hands. at 3A at values ​​close to infinity, it is still normal, but when you turn it to the MDF, the weight balance shifts and the lens simply turns out of hand. maybe with a heavier camera and it will be fine ..
    I will also add that Tair-3A was sold in a leather tube on a belt with color and one UV filters, which were attached to the tube cover; The native lens cap is made of metal, on a thread, which is not very convenient, but reliable.
    and another moment: with the KP-A / N shank, it does not fit into my native tube with light filters, without filters it is normal; with KP-A / 42 - there is no such problem.

      It is rumored that “A” lenses have always been considered to be of better quality.

    An interesting modification of this taira. I have two, but both for photo guns. I would love to change to this or buy it. Mostly the native hood is pleasing, but the usual focus is also a plus. Although, taking a longer shot at the taira with a photo gun you get used to it and only then look for the twist at the bottom of the other lenses on the machine :)

      EVIL is definitely not better, because their aperture ratio is very low.

        F8 and lack of distortion; shutter speed is not critical. This would have to clamp the diaphragm more.

        Tair on F / 8, I think, by permission, it will give you a chance to light up EVIL.

    An excellent lens, I shot the Moon on it on a DSLR and a mirrorless camera - of course, a wild tremor from my hands) But with a tripod and proper patience - excellent quality! The price is now over UAH 1, which is sad. Used to be cheaper

    Fellow photographers, tell me, please.
    Camera Canon 550D. I use a Canon 70-300 F/4-5.6 IS USM lens. I take pictures on a 300 mm FR on a tripod.
    I want better quality, but modern 300 mm fixes are too expensive.
    Tell me, will this lens give sharpness and brightness to photographs compared to 70-300? Will he get better?

      Light transmission is unlikely to be worse for tair than for zoom. Sharpness is also likely to be higher. Whether it will be worth abandoning AF is up to you. Tair-3 is definitely worth a try - it's quite inexpensive.
      Another of the 300 / 4.5 class fixes you can look towards the Japanese (Nikon, Minolta, Olympus) 300 / 4.5 with MS enlightenment. Not the fact that they will be much better than Tair, really :)
      The best old 300mm fix I've come across so far has been the Sonnar 300/4 Zebra, but it's rare, expensive and heavy.

        Rodion, thank you very much for your answer and review in general (I didn’t know about 3A before)!
        I'll take Tair and a couple of Soviet portrait painters to try. It’s very interesting how it all works, besides, for the money that they ask for, it’s practically a free experience.

    Tell me, please, Tair 3a has such a problem - when you turn the focus ring, the lens unwinds into two parts. When you turn the focus ring, the entire lens rotates from the ring to the end, and not just the ring itself. Inside, under the ring, there are two holes, which, perhaps, should serve as a place for attaching screw clamps or something. Maybe someone has a photo in a disassembled state in order to understand how it should be and how to fix it?
