Description Technical Specs
A legend reborn: Introducing the Thambar-M 90 mm f/2.2, a revival of a legendary lens that has intrigued collectors and photographers alike. Originally produced in 1935, the Thambar is available once again and distinguished by its characteristic soft-focus effect and unmistakable bokeh.
While modern lenses typically strive to achieve the highest levels of sharpness and clarity, the Thambar-M 90 mm f/2.2 is all about ‘the look.’ The Thambar lens is known for its ability to capture portraits with a signature aesthetic that cannot be reproduced in digital post processing. Its focal length of 90 mm and optical design together give photographers the perfect tool to compose images with a romantic look and narrative in mind.
The soft look of the Thambar is the result of intentional under-correction from its spherical lens elements. This under-correction increases towards the edges of the frame, allowing both the degree of softening and the depth of field to be precisely controlled by the smoothly-turning ‘stepless’ aperture ring. The effect is most pronounced at wider apertures, and is progressively reduced as the lens is stopped down.
