If you want to call USSR and Russia the same thing, that's your choice, albeit a person with any education in geography, political science, and history will disagree with you. Clearly the fact that the former USSR was comprised of 15 different countries must be a footnote. I digress.

Right.

Except that most all the people I've met(to date), commonly refer to their origins as Russian.
And though one could argue based on geographic or political hearsay, I doubt that would make much of an impression on the situation.

ie. my wife's family claim to be Russian even though they were not from Russia per say.

Also, on the issue in question, it looks like the Helios was manufactured near Moscow
So bringing things back on topic, it looks like it was a Russian lens after all

that is so beautiful... I want one for my jupiter and for my helios...


Please let me know what it cost and if and when I might be able to get one...

Hi, I was not able to find anymore lenses with case such as the one I received, however... I did find the same hoods without a case on this store in the Ukraine.

There is also this hood(from same seller) which looked rather interesting also.
Though these look to be the same ones I purchased for my own Helios.
Incidentally, I payed way to much
