Vega-22UTs is another lens for medium format enlargers of the Vega series. As they say, "Vega" is the most successful series of lenses for photographic enlargers produced by the industry of the union before the well-known events of the 90s. Despite the fact that in modern times these lenses are not particularly in demand, they should not be thrown away, because they can be sold, although not at a high cost. With some skill, this lens can shoot macro without losing detail. Vega are sharp lenses with good color reproduction. In addition, there are built-in filters on board this lens.

Description, ergonomics

Vega-22UTs has built-in light filters that allow you to change the tone of the image obtained during photo printing on the fly. Due to the absence of a focusing ring, on SLR cameras the use of this lens is convenient only with the use of macromechs. With them, a range is obtained, covering from macro photography to large portraits.

With expansion rings - focusing available only in “foot” mode. Heavy, harsh, a little dark. 6 aperture blades, “nuts” in the out-of-focus area. On the reverse side, the lens has a rotatable disc with an m42 thread for easy installation lens to the camera / enlarger. The picture quality is good, but there is one drawback. The very built-in light filters give strong light scattering and moiré when shooting in backlight.

The camera gets up without any problems. Dimensions - you should take them into account when working with this lens. This miracle weighs about 600 grams. With the subsequent RAW development, this, of course, can be removed, but still. Due to the large size of the optical elements, vignetting will not be possible even on cameras with a full-frame 35mm sensor. In general, the lens is not bad for playing around, especially considering its price on the secondary market (from 0 to 500 rubles). Correction filters are controlled by two dials on the top lens... Produced at the BelOMO plant.
