TAIR-11 is a premium portrait lens with outstanding image quality.

Tair-11 is consistently voted as one of the best Soviet portrait lenses, in line with Helios-40.

Twenty(20!) aperture blades are quite unique – the form circular opening on any aperture, which translates into beautiful bokeh.
*Note: This is early silver version with focal length of 13.3cm(133mm) and maximum aperture of 2.8. It is m39 Zenit Thread Mount lens, which comes with m39 to m42 step up ring, effectively becomes m42 screw mount lens with only slight limitation on focusing range – this lens focuses to about 50meters(wide open), which is more then enough for portraiture photography.

Glass is clean and clear, no fungus, no haze, no scratches!
Some light wipe marks perhaps & some internal dust particles present, but nothing to affect the photos.

Feels very smooth, mechanics are excellent too.

Aperture blades are clean from oil.
