The Tair 11A

Here marks the debut of the Tair 11A lens.  For those of you not in the know its a 20 blade, 135mm 2.8 lens.  I picked it up off of eBay mainly because I could.  I found a seller in the US versus the Ukraine where most Russian lenses come from and considering the state of the state over there I lucked out by getting it for less than the Ukraine sellers were offering and it was here in the US.  Neither image is overly spectacular and I was shooting at F4 the entire time but there is some serious bokeh going on.  One of my problems is that I am used to wide format lenses versus the longer lenses.  On a micro 4/3 camera that 135 becomes a 270mm.  I could go into compression and field of view but lets just say its a 270mm for sake of argument.  I also had an issue where the lens was loose from the aperture ring versus the focus ring which caused the lens to slip a bit after focus.  I fixed that so expect to see more from the Tair 11A.

  1. Never got back to express my love for the red flower. Not sure what it is but it is on my desk top with a wonderful look background.
