    Why the “strike trough” on the water housing thingie?

    Take a quick look at the MTF charts for the Zoomar, though. It may be fast, but it’s about as sharp as a butter knife, even in the center.

      I like the comparison! But indeed.

    • I saw that – not credible enough to be posted here, but soon I will have a new section: things I did not post – this would be there.

    You wrote “released” twice in 5th point – the one about batteries 😉
    Best regards

    Lens made is West Germany. That tells you right there how old that things is. Yikes.

      OMG!?!?! That’s just madness!! What can you possibly do with such a lense?! It looks like something from a spaceship…

  • Chris

    Just curious, what do you do with a 180mm f/1.3? Stalking someone in the dark?

    • chicks maybe?
      anyway this lens is sharp like yogurt bottle. if you take 50 f1.8 and crop heavily you get more details out

  • Daniel

    Will the Zoomar 180mm autofocus on my D40x?

  • No but it will shoot ve-e-e-e-ry shallow depth of field 720p HD video on a D90 or D5000 to say nothing of a Canon EOS 5D Mark 2. 🙂
