Miyazaki has been a very busy man lately. Not content with releasing a series of new regular lenses, he has also started working on the History Series of lenses.
And this is the first in the series. The Prot 40mm 6.3, based on a classic design known as the Protar lens formula which originated from Zeiss in 1890. The original formula was designed by Paul Rudolph and was the first lens to be classed as anastigmat. The lens is designed to be of very sharp optical performance.
This is a minute lens, weighing in at only 47 grams. it has a close focus of 60cm. 4 elements in 2 groups.
A fascinating little lens and something quite a bit different from what you usually see. A slower lens for a slower pace.
Now available in Silver!
