    In the rest of the decade, the Chinese virobniks began to richly release the big dozens of years. Just like in the 80-90s of the last century, the skin optics maker of the lenses produced 135 / 2,8, so at the same time the Chinese optics caliper produced 85 widths. How will the stench be so old-fashioned, like those 135s from the past century?! Surely, more than a lot of plastic lenses, but if you lead yourself to fate, show yourself the hour, don’t say anything in advance.
    Mayu Vіltroks 85 pіd kenonіvskiy bayonet. I’m not longing for him, but full of satisfaction.

      This is all prejudice about “plastic lenses”. I already made a note about this

        Hi, Arcadia, not ahead of time. It’s more than mirkuvannya, as they are based on evidence and warnings. Plastic with time becomes more and more shrill, silicones become cloudy and inelastic, and a glorious fungus robs its right side on slabs, or on piece materials.
        And I remember your commentary about combinating lenses through comments, in which language there were not words about lenses, but words about the victory of the so-called socialism over the “cursed” capitalists. The fruit of this “perevaga” chi namagannya її show, achieve for us, Ukrainians, at the same time it’s visibly on your own skin in the outside world!
        Before speech, objects, like victorious on spaceships and stations, plastic lenses are not to be avenged, it’s too bad, fluorite and lanthanum oxide.

      At the same time, none of the virobniks are not infecting dovgvennosti, gladly, now.

      The plastic world won, the layout turned out to be stronger. The last boat has cooled down, the last flashlight is tired... And clods of memories sniffle in my throat... OOOOO, my defense!!!

  • Andrey Dobry

    It would be interesting to see a review of this lens.
    If the sharpness is no worse than the Neewer 85 mm f1.8, then it will be great. Yab bought.
