Hi!

Some photos taken with a no name cine lens. I can simply affirm that it's a lens for 16mm cine camera (probably Kinor-16). Max apperture is 6.3 (written on the ring) whereas focal is close to 300mm (just a bit-bit wider than Tair-3).

It has an uncommon optical design for "modern" lenses : only 2 glasses in the front, and that's all! We can hardly do simpler (it's a doublet, made of 1 crown and 1 flint lens)

This lens could have been made on command for a producer that wanted to use long focal on shoulder videocamera. So, it's quite a pleasant lens to use because of the weight, but it need clear weather (which was not this).

On Sony Nex-3

Good timing with the second Birdy shot!

Remarkably good for a doublet.

Yes, it looks pretty good for such design.

Sometimes simple is best.
