Russian lens set - Jupiter 9, Helios 44, Zenitar 16, Vario-zenitar 25-45

Holy aperture blades! I'm looking to sell the whole set as a group, looking to get $450 for the set, which is a bargain given the prices these lenses normally fetch, plus these are good copies. This is a full set I bought on a whim while on vacation, and got some great pics with them (on film, so when the mythical FF comes out...). The one thing I would say about these lenses is it's tough to judge their condition by modern standards - the Jupiter and Helios, for instance, are 50 years old. By the standards of the lenses, these are in great condition, and have been serviced (the marks on the aperture blades, for instance, show where they were cleaned up at).

Please PM me with any questions or offers. Paypal only, will ship worldwide.

Up for sale:
Jupiter 9 (85mm f/2), silver, red 'P' version. 15 (!) round aperture blades, step less, pre-set aperture (amazing for bokeh and video). Has a small mark on an inner element (see photo), doesn't make an optical difference. Has a wonderful purple hue to its coating. Great portrait softness at f/2, very sharp stopped down. Modified to fit K mount - the only silver K mount I've ever seen, but I could be wrong. $160 SOLD
Helios 44 (58 f/2), silver, m39 version (comes with m39-m42 adapter, and I'll throw in the m42-K adapter). 13 rounded aperture blades, step less, pre-set aperture. Tough to find this lens in better condition. $50 SOLD
Zenitar 16mm fish eye, K mount. Lots of small cleaning marks on lens. Haven't noticed them in any pictures, but I haven't shot it towards the sun anyway. $100 SOLD
Vario-Zenitar 25-45mm f2.8-3.5. A very rare lens this side of the Atlantic. A small, sharp variable aperture zoom with a focal length that, if Pentax were ever to make (including AF and weather sealing) would probably cost about $1000. $200
