    As for Russian RF gear/optics quality, I must say I'm pleasantly surprised with my Kiev 4 and its Jupiters (J8 and J12) - see my photo.net Kiev 4 folder. The scans are rather poor, but i just *love* the bokeh on some photos.
    And I'm quite pleased how the Kiev 4 operates - rather smooth and quiet.

    Next, I'm planning on getting a Fed 2 :-)

    And it should not fit a FED2... the tab hits the camera front. Unless it is an I-10?

    That seems to be the main difference between FED lenses and Industar-22's. On some (but not all) of the Industar lenses the focusing tab hits the camera front just before infinity focus. I'm tempted to grind them down a bit...

    So it seems the FED lenses are slightly different mechanically from the Industar ones.

    Well, I believe both weren´t designed for the FED2... the FED-Industars and KMZ-Industars were meant for the LeicaII-Copies like a FED1 or a Zorkii1, not the later FEDs.

    With grinding it down you´ll probably losen the tab.

    Ole, may I suggest something else? Your lens is a KMZ-Industar22, whats the production year?

    I have a I22 from the early 1970s here - a friend bought that for his Bessa R, got stuck with a problem and gave it to me as a gift. The problem? A nerd cut of the Tab which now allows mounting it to later FEDs but leaving it without a mechanical stop from unscrewing it.

    What about exchanging the two parts - you get the "FEDed" ring, I get a functional one and we both can use it with our cameras... It seems to weight less that 20g which would allow me to send mine via "Europabrief" - a letter. Everything else would be prohibitive in terms of shipping costs.

    Best,

    Roman,
    if you look a few posts back you'll see that I had "6 FED 50mm/3.4, 3 Industar-22 50mm/3.4, and 4 Industar-50 50mm/ 3.5" (they should of course all be f:3.5). This in addition to the one that came wiht my FED-2.

    I'll send you a functional FED lens for a tenner, or a scratched one for the postage
