    Finally received my Industar 50mm, f3.5 from Russia & here you see her flanked by a Minolta 45mm & a Minolta 50mm. What a little cutie! Can't wait for my M39 adapter to arrive to try her out. :D:D She cost me 28US$ all included.

    Time will tell I suppose but she is perfectly clean inside, not a speck of dust & all the glass is crystal clear.

    I love reading about your lenses. I am just starting out and don't have a lot of money to spend on a hobby so I have bought a couple of older olympus om lens. My 50mm 1.8 is the best lens I have so far lol. I paid 8.50 for it and 18 for the adapter.

    A really cheap price for a good lens.

    What camera are you using it on? You could add that to your signature & your location to your Avatar to make it easier for folks to relate to you.
