That lens falls away from focus to bokeh so fast, the flowers in the pot picture has no transition at all. I like it.

The L/Z means it is the M42 version or just that it is coated? I like this lens a lot, I have the LTM version.

I've been wanting one of these for a while, now i see the bokeh I really want one, even nicer than the Helios 44 and I love my 44-2 so i think I would love the Industar even more.

L/Z means it was made for Zenit cameras in m42 mount
L/D version is different and in m39 mount

I add that it exists both an MC version (more recent) and without MC (single coated ?)
I prefer the one without MC (with my samples)

If you look closely the focus is slightly ahead of the flowers & that is why it falls of so drastically behind them.

In focus:
1/3 ahead of focal point
2/3 behind focal point.

These lenses are super sharp but mine can not focus close to the subject. How did you get so close in image 1?

Image 3 is SOOOOOO sharp and has lovely rendering.

i see that you have industar 61 L/D lens, mine is L/Z and those are two completely different lenses
for L/D minimum focus distance is 1m and for L/Z is 0,3m, that's why you can't focus so close to the subject

also L/D focal length is 53-55mm (depending on the production series) and L/Z is 50mm

here is L/D version, and you can see the minimum focus distance

here is L/Z version (like my lens)

to tell you the truth i don't remember, when i shoot i start off wide open and stop it down when needed, i don't really keep track...but i think flowers in the pot were 1 stop closed, and the last photo might be wide open because it was taken in the shade at the sunset
