[SOLD] Tair-11a 135mm f/2.8 (M42) (US) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Tair-11a 135mm f/2.8 (M42)

Asking Price
$130 shipped

Item Location
Santa Fe, NM

Item Description
The Tair-11a needs no introduction among Soviet lens fanatics, but here's a bit of info for the rest of you. This lens has 20 (count 'em!) aperture blades for the creamiest, smoothest bokeh around. In addition, it's pretty damn sharp, even wide open. As an M42 lens, it can be used with the appropriate adapter on any Pentax or Canon dSLR or film body. The thing is built like a tank (all metal) and has a reassuring heft in your hand.

This copy is in excellent optical and cosmetic shape, and everything works properly. The aperture blades are dry and snappy, with no oil (though this doesn't really matter on a pre-set M42 lens, anyway). Focus is smooth. You won't go wrong with this one—I'm only selling because I recently picked up the K135/2.5!

Included: Lens, front cap, rear cap

Shipping: Free in USA by USPS or FedEx, whichever is cheaper

Pictures: Coming soon!
