|Sigma Mini-Tele 135mm f/3.5, Comparison of Size|
June 19, 2016.
This month of June, I came across an old Sigma Mini-Tele 135mm f/3.5. It was released in 1981 and is one of those classic manual focus lenses to pop up in the flea market once in a while.
This telephoto portrait lens is just about as small as any prime lens out there. Typically, 135mm prime lenses would be at least twice as large and heavy.
The lens that I bought comes in Canon FD mount. I took off the mount so now it's just a generic lens without any mount that I can use for my Nikon D5200... until that Nikon Bayonet Ring that I ordered from e-Bay a month ago would arrive by this week. *Fingers crossed.*
The focusing helicoid was newly lubricated using WD-40 and White Lithium Grease. Now the stiff gummy focus ring is smooth as butter.
I shot a comparison photo just to show you the size of this lens. It was shot with another rare classic, the Komura 200mm f/3.5 (Minolta MD Mount).
It's been sitting around the drawer for a while since I was busy taking our the other lenses for testing. Now it's this lens' turn to shine. #Egzoited #FreeLensing #LensWhacking
