Functionality: excellent, fully working condition - the lenses are clean, the visibility is good - without distortion, the focus and aperture work smoothly and pleasantly.
The Industar-61 L / Z MS is a very sharp lens, this is not surprising, this lens is made according to the Tessar optical scheme, and has earned the people the name “Eagle Eye”.
Deep-seated glass and small hole sizes exactly resemble Carl Zeiss Jena Tessar 2.8 / 50. The lens has only 4 lenses in 3 groups.
Due to its excellent sharpness and design, the lens is perfect for macro photography using macro rings, which has earned the fame of not just an excellent staffer, but also a macro lens.
A focal length of 50mm when used on cropped matrices gives the equivalent of 75mm for Nikon (1.5x) or 80mm Canon (1.6x), which allows you to use it as a portrait lens. The sharpness at 2.8 is excellent, but due to the small depth of field, the portraits obtained do not suffer too much sharpness. Nevertheless, I do not recommend it for facial portraits - few people like excessive sharpness on the skin.
The lens has a good contrast transmission and resolution even at the edges of the frame (on the crop matrix so precisely). Resolution center / edge 45/28 l / mm. The bokeh is plastic, but due to the design of the diaphragm it seems that in the background there is a grid that is blurred, for a portrait this is not the best option. Side and back light keeps tolerably, but not perfectly.
Excellent sharpness of the classic Tessar scheme, sometimes no worse and better than the well-known Carl Zeiss Jena Tessar. It gives sharpness both at close and long focus distances. By the way, the inscription “CZJ Tessar” can still be seen on the cameras of mobile phones, especially Nokia, which puts 12mp on mobile phones and proudly signs CZJ Tessar, has become famous for this.
A good opportunity to use for macro photography (in the presence of macro rings).
It can work with full-frame cameras, for those who are waiting for an upgrade from cropped matrices to FF.
