If I told you, I'd have to kill you

Needless to say, the camera and lenses are overpriced, but even so there are 20 people watching the eBay listing (me and 19 others )...
Lol you can tell me. I don't have the money to buy them anyways!

Kinda confused! How many variations of 50mm f1.4 lenses did they make!
I am not sure. For SLR, I found a catalog entry for M42 and K-mount versions, though there might be lenses in M42 and Nikon F too.

interestingly enough, lens-club.ru has only one zenitar 50mm f1.4 lens, the one I listed above.
The information at both sites is sometimes sketchy, but given there are photos and description of both an MC Zenitar-M 50/1.4 and an MC Zenitar-K 50/1.4 in the archived 1990s catalog, I take that to mean that the lens mentioned by the OP as "MC Zenitar-K 50mm f/1.4" is probably the catalog lens with the same name. The lenses mentioned on the lens-club.ru page are described as опытное, which Google translates to English as "experimental" and have different names than the OP's lens. The reference is to the other page at zenitcamera.com where both types (-MA and -K2) are described in greater detail. The -MA variant development work was finished in 1980 and the -K2 variant in 1989.

Perhaps it is time for a new page at lens-club.ru for the production version listed in the catalog?

If it were just you, I'd happily tell you... but most of the forums here are publicly viewable by anyone. Whilst it's unlikely that anyone would see my post and then buy the lenses for themselves, such things do happen. When you're collecting, the fewer people that know what sales you're monitoring, the better

If I manage to buy them - and, frankly, I think it's highly unlikely - or if they're sold to someone else, I'll definitely let you know. They're interesting lenses, for sure
