    Default MIR-1B 37mm f2.8

    MIR-1B 37mm
    serial N84004985
    f range 2.8 - 16
    focal range 0.7 - 20meters - infinity
    12 blades
    M42 mount
    49mm filter

    This lens is a little funky with the focus ring closest to the camera a aperture preset ring and the aperture ring in the middle. The focal length of 37mm is a little different as well. That said it is a compact, light, well built, all metal and glass construction. The images produced were razor sharp with very good color and contrast. The bokeh was excellent. I would put this lens up against almost any other lens for image quality. CA was very well controlled. The Aperture setup is annoying as it is easy to bump and never really sure what you setting really is as it is free floating. There is about 270 degrees of rotation on the focus ring.

    I've got a MIR-1B 37mm too but never bothered to give it a try because, as you note, the weirdness of preset aperture ring and how easy it can be moved of the desired setting but your results are very nice. I think I'll give mine a try on my E510.

    Thanks for posting your results.
