I was looking at Jupiter and Industar lenses on ebay and they are not as cheap as we'd like them to be, unless we order them from Ukraine. Does anyone have any experience doing that?

Be very careful, the market has been risky lately, very... I have a collection of them, that is good to EX+ ones...
Both are the most underrated lenses there are, the Industar when good is Fabulous, I got some in because of a trader loosing out on the custom fees and I paid in advance. And to very very honest, they will go up in price, again, the good ones like crazy. I shoot several on a M3, fantastic......
Just got a Heios 40-2 in, WITH A K MOUNT!!!! Local built, by a crazy Dutchman(Fine Mechanics engineer) It's the first one that's EX+, 1971 built, the rest bad stuff. And this one I paid 75 EUR!!!!
So, be carefull, believe me....

You have some funky stuff in the CCCP lenses;
Helios 44 58mm
Helios 44-3M 58mm (Fantastic sharpness)
Helios 40-2 85mm f/1.5 Great lens, I have it in K Mount
Jupiter 11 135mm
MIR-1 37mm
Jupiter 9 85mm 2.0

They're fun ;-)
