Vega-12 is a standard lens for medium format cameras such as Kiev-60 and Kiev-88. On these cameras, a 90mm lens is normal. Vega-12 was produced with two types of mounts - for bayonet B (for cameras Kiev-6C and -60) and B (for cameras Salut and Kiev-88). Nowadays, variants of lenses with both mounts can be found with approximately equal frequency. In the review, Vega-12 with B mount and the type of mount is indicated in the marking - Vega-12B, which is not always the case. By the way, please note that the name of the lens is in Latin letters, and the mount type is in Cyrillic. Such a mixture of fonts was not uncommon in the markings of Soviet photographic equipment. This copy was released at the Kiev Arsenal plant in 1980.
Frame size: 60 × 60 mm. Number of lenses / groups: 5/4. Working distance - 74.1 mm. Aperture ratio: 1: 2.8. Aperture scale limits: 1: 3.5-1: 22.
Vega-12 is not the only lens option with a similar AF, but it is very worthy. Vega-12 with its f2.8 is far from the leader in aperture ratio. For example, Jupiter-9 with a similar FR of 85 mm gives f2. But this difference in practice will not be noticeable. And the depth of field at f2 at portrait distance is so shallow that a good shot will always be a matter of the lottery.
