MIR-1 37mm f/2.8 m42, black, BRUSSELS GRAND PRIX!



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

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

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