Vega-5U 105mm is a lens for medium format enlargers that can be put on a digital camera and used as a macro lens. I don't know WHY, BUT I DID IT. This is how I usually see some kind of glass, and I try to fit it into what is in the arsenal. This time, having a set of M42 macro rings and the long-suffering 60D, I managed to try Vega in practice.

Description and Application

Vega-5U 105mm has a very prominent rear projection, due to which installation on cameras is possible only through macro fur or macro rings. The body is metal, Vega-5U 105mm does not have a focusing ring, diaphragm 6-petal. The diaphragm is controlled by a zebra-style ring. Aperture switching occurs with clicks and great applied force.

It is better to take pictures with Vega-5U 105mm from an open aperture, so as not to get nuts in the blur zone. By the way, hips у lens peculiar - a lens with such a blur could be quite successfully used in artistic photography, if you can install it on a SLR camera and control the depth of field.

The quality of the resulting picture is peculiar. A background replete with point light sources is so sharp and contrasting that it blends in with the object in focus. Vega-5U 105mm is a very sharp lens. It is cheap, you can easily find a "play".
