Tair-3S 300mm f/4.5 Foto Snaiper Lens Review
ebay.com|ebay.co.uk|ebay.de|google.com|forumS  is supplied with the Zenit foto snaiper camera kit.  This specialty kit comes with the lens, camera, and a rifle stock mount with shoulder butt, pistol grip, and shutter release trigger. This version uses a knob under the barrel to focus (when used with the gun stock) and a spring-loaded diaphragm release activated by the trigger. I found this lens is quite interesting so I pickup one and shared my experience.

Bit heavy lens with interesting focus mechanism and aperture settings, works very well with film camera and I found good performer on DSLR body too. Lens is single coated, this means result has less contrast than ideal.Easy to fix with any image manipulation application. Should good compromise because !!VERY SHARP!! , I suppose this lens a good buy even if it has less contrast than ideal.
