  • Victor

    Yes, the Krasnogorsk plant will have a hard time with such competitors. Although, perhaps, a healthy struggle for leadership in the industry is not an end in itself? ...

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Krasnogorskiy will not be able to compete with them, they have lagged behind for decades.

  • koba

    a very detailed review has already appeared in the internet with a conclusion - an excellent lens. In China, it costs 499 yuan or 76 dollars, and even now, when the dollar rate is 6,54 yuan. Just fine, I'll buy it next month ...

    • Alexander

      I will not find a review. Link please? I also laid eyes on him.

  • koba

    I apologize for the additional post - in the optical scheme of 7 lenses, 3 are made of high refraction glass.
