Orion-15 28mm f/6 Leica Thread Mount m39 lens
MADE IN USSR!

 

Over half a century old vintage glass, in excellent condition, from 1960s!

With mirrorless becoming cameras of choice for serious amateur photographers, there’s a shortage for wide angle lenses. Soviets didn’t make many m39 wide angle lenses so this 28mm is among very few choices, but it’s sure a good one!

 

The Russian Orion-15 is a high quality wide angle lens for the Leica type rangefinder cameras.

It was produced in small quantities and is very uncommon now. The lens is very compact and its design does not require a lens shade. It is quite slow, but coated and produces sharp and contrasty images. –  fedka.com
