    I played a bit today with this very sharp Tessar clone on my E-PL2. These are taken at f/3.5-f/4:

    Have had this lens for years. It is a nice lens, but my copy has terribly un-smooth focus ring :)

    The Fed and Industar lenes are slightly different Tessar designs. The Industar you show is the non collapsible version without the extension tube. You will need an extended adapter to use on you camera. I would get the rangefinder version and LTM adapter if you are going to buy one of these... but really I'd buy a better Russian RF 50 if I were you. The reason to buy the collapsible ones is because they are collapsible on a RF body.

    Alternatively, this lens was also made in an M42 SM which would be easier to adapt... and you could end up using the adapter on better M42 lenses!

    very huge crop, but very little tweaking. Just in love with this cute little lens. All in all, a very versatile lens, at least on m43. Quite sharp, easy focus, good colors and contrast.:boohoo: safelanding001.

    14 is too much, but that does not stop me :eek-31:

    Admittedly I have two copies of the Industar-69 and Industar-50 (one was meat to be used as body for a refit)
    I started with SLR ones, Takumar, X-Fujinon, Trioplan; nice but too big when adapted
    Then I went to rangefinder Russians (including the Industar-50): a bit "average" for my liking and maybe a bit slow...
    I did a couple of refits from rangefinder fixed-lens: the Hexanon 45mm f1.8 gives me really smooth bokeh and relatively sharp.
    Some silly refits from 16mm projection lens and one that has a back focus of 12mm so only usable for close-up (but it's rubbish: 50mm f1.2... very soft low-contrast)
    I am now exploring C-mount one where size is much more to my liking and I find the Cosmicar 50mm f1.4 great for mid-field (portrait) where I get crazy background blur with swirls.
    In the mail I have a promising Canon TV-16 50mm f1.4: sample images I have seen look great
    Also from Ukraine I have a projection 50mm f1.2 that might be able to adapt and fit for infinity on Micro 4/3.

    So many lenses, so little time :boohoo:
