The range includes lenses with focal lengths of 300, 500 and 1000 mm, which are suitable for creative and astronomical photography. The developers of Shvabe Holding have updated the design and improved technical characteristics.

The metal body is not made from a pipe, but is milled from a workpiece. This solution provided a higher manufacturing accuracy and stability of the optical circuit during operation. At the Lytkarino Optical Glass Plant (LZOS) “Shvabe”, which developed the products, they note: at the moment, “Rubinar” is the only serial mirrored lens in Russia with such characteristics.

“In the new look, lenses have become more modern and acquired a number of advantages. So, creative people will love the ring bokeh and macro mode. At the same time, our specialists retained the M42 mounting thread for greater unification with all existing bayonets through simple and inexpensive adapters. At present, the first batch has been manufactured, ”said Alexander Ignatov, General Director of LZOS .

For amateurs of astrophotography, LZOS developers offer an additional service for adjusting the lens “MC Rubinar 10/1000 Macro”. This model is suitable for photographing the surface of the moon, stars and planets of the solar system.
