Some russian lenses like the zenitar 16 and the Jupiter 9 are still in production. Is the quality off the new as good as from the old?

I have two "new" lenses produced in 2005 - a zenitar and a jupiter 9. I compared the jupiter 9 with an older one from 1990. There are no differences, perhaps the output of the new one shows a little bit more contrast due to better coating.
