Some of my Soviet glass.....
Some? That's an incredible collection. Congratulations, great to see, thanks for sharing - it would make a fun jigsaw puzzle and fun to work out all the lenses. How/how long did it take you to collect all these?

If your collection is arranged in the shape of Russia...then my collection would be best arranged in comparative scale on an outline of Iceland...Here are photos by a Helios 44-2 and a Helios 40.

I collected Soviet glass since 2010, I've sold some only to re-buy them again, etc. Over the last half a year or so, I focus mainly on M39 or rangefinder lenses as I moved to mirror-less cameras, still have several Pentax bodies but I find mirror-less cameras are much easier to adapt unusual lenses and projector lenses.

Here's a few of my mirror-less cameras with some of the Soviet glass (Taken with NEX-6 and Helios-33, excellent lens btw)

May be just a garden shot, but the layout is nice and the clarity is breathtaking. Got to check on that lens.

Thanks!. Old russian glass never disappoints.
I wonder how it compares to the 37-A and to the original CZJ Sonnar.

Cannot say about the comparison, but I love my CZJ Sonnar 180mm, and will be trying it on some flowers when our new gardening season begins some months from now.

First time I've used the Zenitar 16mm for a while. I'd forgotten how good it is.

For my "Single in March" challenge I am using my Jupiter-9 85mm f/2 lens on my K-3. I thought I would cross-post a few images here during the month.


March 03: Golf course tree par Kris Lockyear, on ipernity


March 1st: Gandhi in a snowstorm (1) par Kris Lockyear, on ipernity

Kris.
