Owner reviews: Taika Tele Caligon 180 mm f/ 3.5
Surprisingly light for what it is, made of thin non-magnetic metal (Al alloy?)
Not nose heavy, very well balanced
Very smooth almost silky precise operation (aperture blades, both aperture rings, focusing). Not sure why it got *** for mechanical quality
Pretty bright for this focal length
Goes to F22 (not that I need it..)
Great metal hood 70mm diam, 57mm hight
Awkward focal length (270mm) on APS-C sensor
Got mine in M42 mount
I doubt it is multicoated but the coating is very decent
