Mr.Bittacy, Sergtum, thanks for sharing your opinions! It's interesting to know about the colour of coating as an indicator of the model's sharpness.

Sergtum, good find! If it is not indiscreet of me, I'd like to ask you what is your definition of "cheap" for a white Mir-1 you got? A couple years ago I got a black Mir-1 for around 30 euros. It did not impress me, but I read some positive reviews (together with very negative ones), so I said to myself it might be worth turning back to the lens when I have longer time to test and to adjust myself to its merits. I still was pretty curious about white versions that normally trade from 50 and up to 100 euros. I am still undecided if I need a white Mir-1 added to the black one left somewhere on the shelves, and to some others 35mms like Hexanon, Yashinon-DX and Takumar.

Alex, I posted some comparison pictures of the two Mir 1 lenses I have in the other Mir 1 thread, it shows how the coatings affect the White balance mainly. I wouldn’t worry too much about the coatings as far as sharpness goes, I think the sample to sample variance is probably the main reason for the difference in mine, but I don’t think it hurts to get an earlier lens if possible, it seems like the quality is a little higher. I have an early KMZ Helios 40, 44, Jupiter 11 and Jupiter 8 with the blue coating and they are all great..

Mr.Bittacy, thank you for the good news. I've seen the neighbour thread. A useful comparison!

1500(lens cost) + 500(post cost) российских рублей ~ approximately in sum 30 EUR

Sergtum, thank you for the precision. 30 euros is a very good price for a white Mir in such a good condition! Wish you more good shots
