Product Information


Ultra-wide-angle MC MIR-20M 20mm f/3.5 M42 fast lens

Carl Zeiss Flektogon copy

MC Mir-20 20mm f/3.5 is an interchangeable ultra-wide-angle fast lens. 
This is the multicoated version of Mir-20M.

Fully functional. Rear glass coating is slightly damaged. No major defects. Does not affect the quality of the images.

The basis of the optical scheme of the Mir-20 lens was borrowed from the Carl Zeiss Jena Flektogon 20 mm f/2.8 lens. Some changes have been made to the scheme.

The lens produces a sharp image, especially in the central region, already from aperture 3.5, from aperture 5.6 it is very sharp. The drop in resolution at the edges of the frame is quite noticeable.

The Mir-20 20mm f/3.5 has almost no geometrical distortions.

Color reproduction is bright and saturated. Slightly shifted to the area of​​warm tones.

The Mir-20 lens is perfect for shooting landscapes, interiors, architecture, genre and reportage

Fits well on modern digital SLR cameras. When set to hyperfocal distance, you can forget about autofocus and shoot very quickly.
