Thx !!!

Its a beast of a manual focus lens the TAIR 3Phs ! drawback is in fact my own eye sight, if i don't focus through the center of my glasses its slightly out of focus !!

Another thing which people either love or hate is the very unconventional way of focussing by means of a small knob on the lower forward side with a diameter of 2 inch (or 5 cm), so a twist of this little knob of 360 degrees ranges from 3 meters till infinity (which is above 100 meters) . so a small rotation of this knob is a big difference, and this together with my eyesight is a handicap !!

But still i love this lens for focussing at a small twist of the wrist, from 3 till 100 meter !!!

See the lens and knob in the next picture , you see what i mean with unconventional !! see >> [link]

I also bought a TAIR 3A which is the same lens only the focussing is conventional !!

probably it is better for me to focus !

I don't remember what camera you are using, but is it possible that there is a built in diopter. If it is there, once adjusted it should give you a better shot at the focus.

The lens itself is really interesting. I have never seen one like it.

I have an Olympus E420 and E600 body, both with diopter adjustment and is set, problem is that the glasses have a small modern frame in hight which gives a small area to look through, this in combination whit the linited depth of field (since it acts like a 600mm since crop factor of 2x )

The 3Phs (Photo Sniper) was originally made for military use that why it has the small round focus knob on the forward lower bottom , since it was mounted on a rifle stock combined with a Zenit reflex camera, and held as a rifle , so both sides of the round adjustmentknob would stick a little out of riflestock on both sides !!!

see next link with picture with rifle stock, and canon attched !! [link]

greetz lenZ. Ps , i paid 90 for the 3Phs (without riflestock) and 45 for the 3A Tair lens , bargains !!!!! ( in fact they are copies of the early leitz telyt lenses !!!)

It is probably an issue of correction. I use the diopter on the camera, and I remove my glasses. I suppose depending on the strength of your correction and the abilities of the diopter, that might not be possible. If I had to shoot with glasses I think I would quit.

What can I say... cool lens... cool set up.

I know it is hard for me to get good pictures using glasses especialy when using a 300mm or more (due to the minimum depth of field), but it is so much more rewarding to me when they do come out nice , since i have done it myself !! not the autofocus !!!

I will stick to my manual focus lenses !!!

Oh I am not suggesting your change to auto focus Len, I don't always use it either, especially in critical situations. But I have found the diopter to be very good on my camera, so the glasses thing does not happen. Like I said before, if I had to wear my glasses to shoot, I think I would quit.

up to 200mm is oke but 300mm and higher is very critical !!

someone said to me that it could be due to a cylindrical inperfection in my eye , so next time i go to the opticein i will ask him.
