ERIC I HAVE USED RUSSIAN LTMS ON MY BESSA R AND ON A FED 3B WICH BY THE WAY IS A GOOD CAMERA. OFCOURSE THEY ARE IN NO WAY EQUAL TO LEICA LENSES BUT FOR $30.00 YOU CANNOT BEAT THEM AND THEY CAN BE PRETTY GOOD IF YOU FIND THE RIGHT ONES, I HAVE USED THE 35MM JUPITER12 A ZEISS COPY I BELIEVE, THE 50MM JUPITER 8 THE ONE I HAVE IS GREAT CONIDERING I PAID $25.00 FOR IT AND A 90MM JUPITER 9 WICH IS NOT BAD. BUT I THINK SHARPNESS IS OVER RATED SOME TIMES ANY WAY WHEN I WHANT IT I USE MY 4X5 OR 8X10. 35MM IS WHAT IT IS HOW MANY OF ROBERT FRANKS OR LOUIS FAURER OR EVEN CARTIER BRESSON GREAT PICS WERE TRULY SHARP.ITS THE SUBJECT THAT MATTERS IMHO.
