MIR-1 37mm f/2.8 m39 ZTM, BRUSSELS GRAND PRIX!

MADE IN USSR!

 

This is the early MIR-1 wide angle 37mm f/2.8 lens – which is has very little in common with the black Mir-1B version.

*Note: this is m39 Zenit Thread mount lens. We include m39 to m42 step-up ring, so the lens can be used as a regular m42 mount lens, with slight limitation on focusing range.

Mir-1 is vintage wide angle lens for  early Zenit SLRs. It can also be used on for photo & video o modern digital cameras via adaptors: Canon, Nikon, Sony NEX, Olympus Pen, Panasonic G, Canon EOS M, Nikon 1, FujiFilm X-mount etc.

The m39 ZTM are lenses for early Zenit SLR cameras – flange distance is slightly different from the later adopted commonly known m42 standard.

As a result this lens will not quite reach infinity focus when used on m42 cameras or via m42 adapters – but this is only noticeable on open apertures.  When stopped down to f/11-16 the increased depth of field covers the whole range, including infinity focus!

Of course using this wonderful vintage lens shooting landscapes would be a misuse. When used for portraits one would not feel this limitation.

The m39 ZTM lenses are lenses for early Zenit SLR cameras – flange distance is slightly different from the later adopted common m42 standard.
As a result this lens will not quite reach infinity focus(noticable on open apertures), but when stopped down the increase depth of field covers the infinity focus.

We include m39 to m42 step up ring to enable usage of the lens with modern m42 adapters:

NEX adapter – for Sony NEX E mount cameras
Fuji X adapter – for FujiFilm X-mount cameras
Micro 4/3 adapter – for Panasonic G, Olympus Pen etc
EOS M adapter – for Canon mirrorless cameras
Nikon simple adapter & infinity adapter – on Nikon (D)SLR
Canon EOS adapter – for Canon (D)SLRs
P-K adapter(or infinity) – on Pentax K-mount cameras

Also available “tilting” adapters for Micro 4/3, Fuji X and Sony NEX E and many others here

Clickless, stepless aperture(with preset ring) makes this lens attractive for videographers as well as photographers.

 

In our tests (of another copy of) this lens it is magical.

Another “feature” of this lens – it’s most amazing flares – something first of all videographers will enjoy the most!

See our 10seconds video here, see other people’s flare test here.

 

*NOTE – on full frame Canon SLR cameras at long focusing distances mirror blockage by rear part of the lens occurs.
