Industar-61L/Z-MC 50/2.8

Индустар-61Л/З-MC (Industar-61L/Z-MC) 50/2.8:

This is the first lens I ever bought. Before that, I got lenses for free.

I used the lens quite often on my Pentax *ist Ds. In fact, it was the main lens on this DSLR for the first time.

It's much more usable than the Индустар-50/50-2 (Industar-50/50-2), but I can't call the image quality very good. Although this copy is good.

Now I use the Pentax K 50/4 Macro (also Tessar type, 4 elements in 3 groups) instead.

The Pentax K 50/4 Macro is better both optically and mechanically, it gives more magnification (up to 1:2).

(at the minimum focusing distance)

And the difference between f/2.8 and f/4 doesn't matter for the task at hand.
