Microplanar - Korrektar lens set

The Soviet production comprised also super-macro objectives similar to the Zeiss Luminar series This set is made by LOMO. Here are shown three models, of Mikroplanar type. They are done in 40mm f/4,5, 65mm f/4,5 and 100mm f/4,5 focal length. As the name says, they are Double Gauss type much similar to those also built from Zeiss. The Makro-Planar 120mm f/4 version has a resolution around 420-330 l/mm in the center and 230-150 l/mm in the edges. A fourth objective, a 150mm f/6,3, called Korrektar aimed to reproduction in direct scale (optimization in the interval 0,5x - 1x), has his outline much similar to the German Rodenstock Apo-Gerogon. These lenses can be used in various cameras and have capabilities of covering up to the 5x7" image format. These lenses have special threaded mounts. The 40mm is the only equipped with standard “RMS” mount. The prominent German collector Dr. Klaus Schmitt has shared these images and informations credits: pictures and drawings Dr. Klaus Schmitt gently offered by Mario Cavina.
