    Thanks, especially momus and thundertwin. This seems to be an exhaustive lists of FSU lenses made for Nikon mount.

    Do anyone know if they can be compared to the lovely imperfections of the Industar?

    Try this: Drop 24 bucks on a Holga and spend another 12 bucks for a 35mm insert and then go back to town and shoot up a storm without exposing your Nikkor lenses to the shame and humiliation of attachment to a Russian rig.

    The Zenit KMZ factory recently started selling new 85mm f1.5 Helios model 40-2 pre-set lenses in Nikon F, Canon EOS, and the M42 mounts. I just bought the Nikon F mount on Ebay (from a USA dealer), and I’m very pleased with it.

    I have a Jupiter 37a 135 3.5. It has M42 and Nikon mounts(yes it does focus to inf on a Nikon). It is sharp even wide open and has better bokeh than most Soviet lenses. It has 12 aperture blades that give nice round out of focus highlights stopped down. But very flare prone. There's no meter coupling or connection between camera and aperture. Stop down metering only. And the f stops are not very accurate. So if you're NOT using the camera's TTL meter or TTL flash, bracket or run a test roll first to get correct exposure.

    Thanks Eric and Bill. I have looked for out of focus properties on flickr, and found nasty stuff on the normal lenses, which are my favourites. Maybe I should take a chance on the modified Industar 61...
