Industar-61 L/Z 50mm f/2.8 Macro

I was curious about this lenses quality, because it's low price. I had a more than pleasant experience with Industar-2 50mm f/3.5. So when I had a chance to buy it,  I bought. Folks, I just say Wow! Amazing lens, sharp as possible with good color rendering. I have the legendary Kiron 105mm f/2.8 macro 1:1 and Tamron SP 90mm f/2.5 too,  so I have experience with cult third party lenses. Industar-61 L/Z is  good at least as the others, easy to focusing, very compact, very well built quality lens. I suppose this lens is definitly one of my traveller lenses.

No wonder. All lenses were made by the Soviet military factories. And it means better quality. Because we have never pursued for profit, was a fundamental quality!
