MC ZM-5CA 8/500 lens history

 

The mirror-meniscus lens with multilayer-coated achromatic. Option "CA" characterized by reduced size and weight. The ZM-5CA is a classic sample of Soviet-era engineering and workmanship. It is a 500 mm telephoto mirror lens based on the design of a known Soviet engineer Maksutov. Since the lens is half the weight than ZM-5A - holes for mounting on a tripod is not available. Important note: because the lens has a huge overrun at infinity, it can be put on any sort of camera. The letter "A" in the title means a removable liner. That is, removing a shank, you can put on the other. For example, the Nikon. The letters "ZM" decrypted "zerkal'nyi (Mirror) meniscus." The main feature of the mirror-meniscus lens is that they give so-called "annular" bokeh, ie circle of confusion in the area will be a circle with a hole in the center.
