Kilfitt Macro-Kilar 40mm f/2.8-22.0

Both the 3.5 & 2.8 version of the 40mm Macro-Kilar had variations in the form of type-D ( 1/2 magnification, min focusing to 0.2m ) and type-E ( Life Magnification, min focusing to 0.17m ), in Black or Satin Chrome. One must take caution using this lens as it has a rear element that protrudes quite far into the mirror box.

    Lens used is Kilfitt Macro-Kilar 40mm f/2.8-22.0The Kilar, is not exactly a sharp lens by all account, but still its coverage and the easy going speed of 2.8 made it a very good all around lens for casual walkaround
