It must be either Jupiter 21 or Helios 44 then because that is vologda logo and those two lenses are the only ones which have their own threads here.

Helios-44-2 58mm f/2
But i have already guessed so if that doesn't count ignore my answer

Logo is correct - late VOMZ logo.
But none of those lenses. Jupiter 21 is a 200 mm f/4 lens, and surely would not fit. It's not a Helios either (I'm not sure if they were sold in such boxes - but even if, Helios is also bigger than the one shown).

It's MIR then because that's the only small lens VOMZ has produced. I've never seen them before though

Yes 🙂 - MIR-1V / Мир-1В 37mm f/2,8

Here is the said thread:

MIR

And the object, with the cap still attached:

This is even easier. Camera related and model is required because it's sort of "industry standard" and alternatives are reviewed against this one.

This has turned out more difficult than I estimated.

Here's a hint. Most higher end m4/3 cameras can have exactly this one.

I repeat the original hint: if you are about to buy one, you'll end up comparing alternatives against this one (as do all reviews) so exact model name is required

I think comparatively speaking
“Rode”
Not bad but RØDE what?

(And why does an Australian company have Danish letters in their name? They don't even have Danish language as an option in their website)

I was looking for a type which is shotgun mic but this is close enough. That's why the image was so messed up. It was a macro shot through the tube to microphone capsule at the bottom. Also RØDE Video Mic Pro ... which has suddenly stopped working. That's why I had to take it apart.

Your turn!
