Comments: 12, on the topic: Announcement: TTArtisan DJ-OPTICAL Tilt 50/1.4

  • Sandro

    It is strange that the Chinese produce such a lens and only for two mounts ...

    • B. R. P.

      It is strange that this is fifty dollars, and not 35 mm., For example.

      • Sandro

        It seems to me that they just started with the most structurally simple lens - fifty dollars.

        This is not Venus Optics with its immensely cool designers ...

        • B. R. P.

          Maybe you're right. On the other hand, Arsenal was unlikely to have immensely cool designers, but they were able to:

          • Rodion

            Arsenal was the most advanced optical enterprise in the USSR. Look - they had a well-developed system of cameras and lenses, among which were not the obsolete Helios-44 and I-50, but quite a decent G-81N with MS, TVs like Telear 200 / 3.5, zooms (Granite-11 is generally the only folk zoom for the entire scoop), the widths were with MS - 35/2 Mir-24N and 20 / 3.5 Mir-20N. Moreover, Arsenal was the only manufacturer of medium format DSLRs and optics for them in the USSR. Tair-33, Volna-3 and Vega-28 are still of interest.
            In general, just Arsenal were pretty cool, but like many enterprises, conversion, economic shocks, they did not survive the market. And it’s a pity - in Ukraine there is also an Izyum plant that melts glass, from which the same Arsenal could make excellent optics ...

            • B. R. P.

              Yes, in the defense industry of the Soviet of Deputies everything was of the highest order. As for the Izyum plant, I don’t know until what point they were melting glass (at least in 2000, when I was there, they produced spectacle lenses and inserted them into Chinese frames, a whole business then grew around the plant, cooperatives, PE etc.) and not sure if it exists at the moment(

              • Rodion

                In the defense industry, the Soviet of Deputies was not always of the highest rank - the same LZOS managed to kill absolutely all of its Jupiter-9s in production (it is very likely that by decentering), the quality of Wave-9 macro also raises questions. True, now LZOS is an even more miserable sight, no doubt.

          • Sandro

            This is a shift, not a tilt mechanism. Not tilt, but shift.
            It seems to me that the slope is structurally and computationally more difficult to do.

            Rodion, what do you think?

            • Rodion

              In my opinion, there is not much difference. Oddly enough, the tilt of adapters is known to the sea, but the shift is not so much.

  • B. R. P.

    Rodion: About the highest category, I, rather, in an ironic sense. And then, the production of photographic equipment for civilian purposes in military factories has always been a side effect, and if something worthwhile came out, then it was a matter of chance, because. the party did not set such tasks (to provide the Soviet mass consumer with high-quality photographic equipment). Although there was certainly potential.

  • BlackProfessor

    As for LZOS and its memorable Jupiters-9, I completely agree: as recently as yesterday, I was able to make sure that the black LZOS U9 with a single-layer enlightenment of 1978 covers its MS-descendant of 1995 like a beetle to a bug: it has less software, better sharpness and resolution, especially along the edge (test on SF).
    I won’t say anything for Arsenal, but its Vega-28 is not inferior in the picture, and probably even surpasses its Zeiss relatives Biometar 120 / 2,8.

  • Andrei

    Hi all. I am the owner of ttartisan 90/1.25 (excellent glass), now I bought this tilt 50/1.4. I had 21 / 1.5 from this company - but I got either a marriage or crap - soap on the one hand, horror. Now I'm going to test tilt 50mm. I'm waiting for it to dry and the greens will come out. Peace and goodness to all!
