After some patient waiting I found a 50mm f2 Jupiter lens for my Fed 2, and then a second for my Zorki C, both in excellent condition should have bought more at the price £10 ($15.50) each :D

Should have said the Zorki C came from the same seller at a Camera fair before Christmas, a £2 ($3.10) bargain.

These now make a nice little set with my Leica IIIa and it's f2 Summar.

Nice set, and nice photos of them, thanks for posting. I don't know much about the Russian cameras but they're interesting to see.

Ah, great buy ... so many sellers are trying to bump up pricing on FSU lenses.
They look in good physical condition.

The black one is mint, looks like new, the older silver one is excellent optically slight aging of the aluminium which is normal, ideally needs the focus helical re-greasing but not essential.

The seller (at a camera fair) had 3 or 4 more, I bought the Silver one first and went backa few minutes later & bought the second. That attracted two dealers who had stalls and sell on ebay as well, they snapped up the rest, so they'll be sold for much more.

There's a lot of equipment sold early an bargain prices that gets sold later on Ebay, you have to shop around.
