Does anyone have one of these? Mine came this morning (well, it has been almost two months since I bought a lens!). I like my Mir 1B 37mm very much so am hoping this lens will be as good or better. Anyone have any pictures to share?

I've got one. Performance is pretty much up there with Nikon 35/2. I posted close up comparisons of the two in lens testing a while backand theres the odd shot in the Gallery _ I think the thread was a Sunday walk around Faversham or similar.

Certainly Smile Orio uses a 24H on his Canons

Got a chance to try my new Mir 24H last week. It has instantly become one of my favourite lenses. Great black and white:



Lovely colours:



And, most importanty, it does cat photos just fine Smile

My wife gave this lens as a present to me.
The results are stunning. Low light capabilites are suberb. It even focuses close enough for general macro work. Last weekend it was the only lens I brought with me and I never missed my zoom lens.

All I wanted was a a normal lens with a wide aperture for my DSLR but current picks like sigma 30mm f1.4 is not what I wanted. 35mm is okay for 50mm prime lens equvalent on DSLR and f2 is more than enough for me.

After It is given to me I immediately modified it with cpu from an old 50mm f1.8 AF Nikkor and now it works flawlessly on my D70s with -2 exposure compensation.

Can someone tell what is the difference between Mir-24H and Mir-24M?
Is it much better than Mir-37B (the latest version)?

MIR-24N is Nikon mount and made in Arsenal factory
MIR-24M is M42 mount and made in LZOS factory

MIR-37B?
Do you mean the MIR-1 or MIR-1B perhaps?
if so
Yes, it's faster and it's better under all respects in my opinion.
(It is also multicoated while the MIR-1 and MIR-1B are not)

If instead you mean the MIR-36B, I don't think that the lenses are comparable.

Yes, actually I meant Mir-1B which is a 37mm f/2.8.
I am dissapointed by this lens, at least my copy resolve details pretty badly. The build quality looks very good though.

I have a 1B too - flares easily, but it's sharp enough for me:
