Emitar/S 4,5/80. Review




Emitar/S 4,5/80 is enlarger lens for medium format enlarger “Krokus-66 Color”. Produced in Poland. Manufacturer is PZO Warszawa. The lens is available in different versions and mountings. Emitar/S 4,5/80

PZO Warszawa manufactures special optical instruments: microscopes, overhead projectors, binoculars, photographic enlargers, etc. Among lenses for photographic enlargers I have met Mikar/S 4,5/55 it is for small-format photographic enlargers and Amar 4,5/105 - for large format. Janpol Color 5,6/80. Other lenses of this brand I have not seen. Optical design is Tessar, 4 elements in 3 groups. Emitar/S 4,5/80

The lens has a small size: 4 cm long and 42 mm diameter.

Aperture has 5 blades. Closes discrete and has a total of 5 points: 4,5-5,6-8-11-16. The lens has a budget constructive. In front of a lens is hood is made in the form of a polygon, whereby the front lens is fitted with a 6 mm depth.

 

Emitar/S 4,5/80 Mounting to a DSLR Camera

The lens has a mount thread M42. I mount Emitar/S 4,5/80 on the Nikon camera by special homemade helicoid, small extension ring, and adapter M42-Nikon. When the focus range is from 2 m to infinity. If you want to focus on a close range, you need to put in place a middle extension ring, but will not be infinity. With this homemade helicoid the feeling is that this is a native lens constructive.
