Description:
The Mir is a family of wide-angle photo lenses, made in the USSR.

The Mir-24 35 mm f/ 2 is a wide-angle lens with a single- or multi-layer coating for SRL cameras.

The M42 screw mount version was manufactured by the KMZ.

The Arsenal Factory (the Vega Factory) also produced the MC Mir-24N bayonet variant (the Nikon bayonet mount), based on the same optical scheme, but with a different barrel construction.

The lens construction was equipped with a switchable instant-return aperture.

The Mir-24m; and the MC Mir-24m mc differ in lens coating only. The version with multi-coating (MC) is much better resistant to side and back light.

The other characteristics of the Mir-24 35 mm f/ 2

The resolution according to the technical specifications (center/edge): 40/21 lpmm
Coefficient of transparency (the MC Mir-24m): not less than 0.90
Color contribution index (the MC Mir-24m): 11-0-0
Mount Type: Third-party (adapter required)

Pros: Affordable, very sharp, smooth bokeh
Cons: Soviet control quality lacks
Sharpness: 10    Aberrations: 9    Bokeh: 10    Handling: 8    Value: 10   

This thing is a hidden gem ! A close focus 35mm f/2 fully usable wide open, with nice rendering and very smooth bokeh.


The lens is a bit heavy, build quality itself is good but not as good as Nikkor or Olympus OM lenses. It does not feel indestructible like an Helios 44. But it is still quite nice and for the price, I can't complain.
The problem is, as usual with Soviet lenses, quality control lacks. It means lots of lenses have dust, scratches or spots straight from the factory. Not a real issue but it can bother some people.


Optically, it is as good as Nikkor 35mm f/2 and I think bokeh is even smoother. It's sharp, it's multicoated and colors are beautiful. Mir24 focuses down to 24cm, as close as the famous Flektogon 35mm f/2,4 !
It's cheap, it's great, don't hesitate to give it a try !
