Sample pictures: You may click
on the sample image (except closest focus) for full resolution. The
full resolution image opens in a new window, so you can keep it open
for comparison. Focus is on the
dish to the right of the big solar panel near the center of the photo.
Closest focus is 1m (!) from
edge of the lens, F 8. Focus on
the program wheel of the camera.
The Industar-22 was made by KMZ and is a Zeiss Tessar
formula, 4 elements in 3 groups. Elements 3 and 4 are cemented.
It's said that it was copied from the Leitz Elmar, which is the Zeiss
design. It had a predecessor, the Industar-10. As the Industar-10 was
later produced and improved by FED, production dates overlap. Late
10/FED and the 22 are similar.
Already wide open
picture quality is o.k. Stopped down it's astonishing for such
a simple lens design. Have a look at the full resolution image
at F 16 and you know what I mean. The lens has no
close focussing capablities. It is very small, lightweight and cheap. A
very nice legacy lens to start with.
lens is collapsible. There is enough room iside the A7 to collapse it,
at least with my version, but you have to try at your own risk. Please
proceed slowly, you don't want to aspire dust into the camera. It's an
extremely small and lightweight lens. Depending on your adapter, you
might have to cut out a little "groove" for the base of the tiny knob,
that has to be pushed in to set the lens to infinity and lock
there. My adapter has a slightly protruding ring, so I had just to file
off a weeny bit of the base of the knob. Some Industar-10 and the FED lenses have a clip lock for infinity, not a
push-button, as the Industar-22. Depending on your adapter, the push
button can be a problem, so a late Industar-10/FED might be preferable to a
lens can not be fully collapsed into the A6000. It touches the plastic
around the opening for the sensor. If you push cautiously, it collapses
quite a bit, but again it's at your risk.
