This blog is created specially to share my knowledge and experience using Russian made lenses, especially those of post-war designs. Russian lenses such as MIR, Jupiter, Helios, etc. are widely available from eBay today. And they are pretty affordable too.

Most of the lenses are made from a factory by the name of Krasnogorskij Mechanicheskij Zavod (Krasnogorsk's Mechanical Plant), often abbreviated to KMZ but currently rather spelled as Krasnogorsky Zavod, is, with LOMO in St. Petersburg, one of Russia's largest optical factories, and probably one of the world's largest too.

I have acquired a few of the famed Russian lenses over the past 3 months, namely the MIR-1B (37mm f2.8) and Jupiter-9 (85mm f2.0). These are M42 screw mount lenses, and I use them almost exclusively on my Asahi Pentax Spotmatic F. I also have a M42/Nikon adaptor to be used with my Nikon D70.

Most of the designs of these lenses are copied from the European counterparts, namely Zeiss (Germany). The Jupiter-9 is actually a modified Sonnar design, with a supposedly improved formulae.

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find
this topic to be actually something that I think I would never understand.
It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I'm looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it!

An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment.
There's no doubt that that you need to write more on this subject, it may not be a taboo matter but typically folks don't talk about these issues.
To the next! All the best!!

Hey there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?

I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic however I'd figured I'd ask.

Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa?
My website covers a lot of the same subjects as yours and I believe we could
greatly benefit from each other. If you are interested feel free to send me an
e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Great blog by the way!
