The MIR-1V 37mm f2.8 Lens is a beautifully quirky soviet era lens with dreamy lens flare and quasi-magical bokeh that is not unlike the bokeh found on other legendary Russian lenses like the Helios, although, unlike the Helios, it’s 10 blades render a perfectly-rounded bokeh effect.

    While it takes mastery to user properly, the MIR-1V yields superb results with the right technique. It’s pleasantly soft wide open, but starts to get sharp at f/4 and is tack sharp by f/8

    The 270° rotation on the focus ring makes this lens delightfully precise and allows you to nail the focus on subjects.
