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.
