Tair-11A 135mm f/2.8 is a fast telephoto lens.

High-aperture lens with coated optics. Equipped with an iris diaphragm and its pre-installation device. Has a small built-in lens hood.

The almost perfectly round aperture of the Tair-11A 135 mm f/ 2.8 lens with 20 blades provides beautiful blur at wide apertures. The picture is sharp, but at the same time plastic.

This version has much higher center and edge resolution compared to versions 11 and 11-2. In addition, version 11A has a more convenient (and more modern) design. It also has a minimum focusing distance of 30 cm shorter and is 1.2 meters. It is shorter than its counterparts, but slightly heavier.

Tair-11A is very much appreciated by Western amateur and professional photographers.  135mm focal length and aperture F / 2.8 allow very good control depth of field and easy to take pictures with a blurry background. Blurred background often very important in portrait photography, with blur Tair-11A copes with a bang.
Round aperture - the number of aperture blades is 20 (twenty) pieces, which is a very good indicator for shooting with the correct circles in the blur zone. What diaphragm you can’t install - you get an even, round bokeh without any deviations. In general, there are quite a few lenses with a normal number of aperture blades, so often bokeh is obtained in the form of “nuts, bagels or Dali’s works”. The diaphragm is truly round, and the bokeh is creamy.

Resolution according to specifications (center / edge): 44/24
