has been years since i wrote anything here ^^.

But with my limited time, i decided to clean up my boxes of lenses.
And i found this ( bad condition no focus Helicoid ) in a box of repair parts i found on a fleamarket. never tested it because it has fungus in it.

So i decided to test it today (has been in the light for over 4 y).( fitted in an broken Industar-50-2 )

did a small test and here they are Wink.
I am very impressed with it, sharp, nice bokeh, love the rendering, shallow focus plane, only the contrast is poor when aimed anywhere near a light-source. ( probably the fungus ).

Fairly sharp wide open at F2 ( F2 F4 F5.6 F8 )
Bokeh is in my opinion soooo smooth :O i love it!

And some test shots with a small zoom in

If anyone has any idea how the full lens looks, please share a picture ^^
