    I'd also recommend Industar-61L/D, because of its beautiful bokeh for 2-5 meter focus distances and moderate aperture (4-5.6), especially strangely beautiful for this cheap lens.

    IIRC all I-61 are rare earth-glass, that was (one of the) improvement(s) when the I-26 was redesigned to become the I-61. The L/D was added later to separate the Industars for the Zenit-SLR from the "classic" Leica-mount ones.

    It's bad enough having photography to blame for my near-poverty. But now I have to blame photography for my hair falling out?

    All right, I just bought an I-61

    Total price £12, including shipping. So we'll see if it's any good

    Zenrhino, don't worry about the readioactivity. Just don't keep it in your pocket, or sleep with it under your pillow for more than a year at a time.

    Yes, in L/D and L/Z marks D means dalnomernaya - a rangefinder camera in Russian, and Z is for zerkalnaya - mirror reflex camera. These designations were put in only to differentiate between two variants of the same lens - M39 and M42. All I-61 contain lanthanum optical elements inside, but some of them have multicoating, being marked MC. I love this lens very much - it performs great for its size, price and availability! The bokeh is very nice, too - between 5.6 and 8 you can obtain plenty of David shields all around the frame, and usually that looks quite nice

    Regards from Moscow,

    You need all of them and no playing favorites.

    No one has mentioned the Jupiter 8. It is not quite as contrasty as the I-61 L/D but decently sharp even at f2.

    Let's see... Now I have the FED 50mm collapsible that came with the camera, I have an In-22, an In-50, and found an In-61 in the mail today.

    If I shoot a film changing between these lenses, and print the results to the best of my ability, is anyone willing to try to determine which picture was taken with which lens?

    Ole,
    That would be a fun thread. I was thinking of doing the same thing with some 35mm SLR lenses. I just got a cheep 35mm focal length Vivatar, Miymia/sekor, and a very reasonably priced Zeiss Distagon for my Contax and thought I would do a comparison and see if there is a visible difference.
    Maybe we could start a "guess the lens" thread.
