    This is an Industar 61 L/D 53mm F2.8 for Leica thread mount rangefinders. The glass is in very good condition. The iris is oil-free. The mechanics are fine except for a slight uneven resistance in some parts of the focus travel (typical of these lenses). Makes very sharp, colorful images and is a real bargain in a photographic category devoid of bargains!

    Price: $17 plus shipping

    I can echo David's description of this lens, I have owned several and these lenses and the presence of the rare earth element Lanthanum really makes a drastic difference in the way this lens resolves the image, super sharp with great contrast and color reproduction. The FSU lenses have not always been the best constructed but they more than make up for that with the optics! At $17 wow, better than you can get from the FSU and you don't have to wait a month for it! LOL.

    I also have one - a lovely inexpensive Russian lens.
