    Hello. This is my first thread here.
    Here are my lenses and Zorki camera just to show you how they look like. These are Orion,Jupiter,Industar,... lenses and some of them are really old but they are really nice and makes great photos. Maybe it is not an interesting thread but anyway if you have some questions about lenses I willl be glad to answer.
    P.S. Sorry for my english

    Welcome! You've got quite a nice collection. I gather they all use the same adapter for use on m4/3?

    Cool set. The Orion is a hard to find lens.

    Thanks. They are mostly used with m39 to m43 adapter but prakticar and canon have other adapters ( fd to m43 and pk to m43). This prakticar 135 f2.8 is very very nice lens and I also figured out that this orion is rare lens and its size is great for m43.

    Welcome! Beautiful collection. The Jupiter-8 is one of my favorite lenses.

    Please post some pictures taken with the Orion - I think all of us here would be very interested to see them.

    Reminds me that I really need to buy another Industar-61L/D :) I wonder if a Jupiter 12 would fit on my E-PL1?

    Great collection!

    I like my Jupiter 8 too, it is really lovely little lens. I will post some photos with Orion and other lenses in a day or two because I am busy these days. I would like to try Jupiter 12 on my epl1 too and it would fit nice but I saw only ones with Kiev mount so you need Kiev mount to m43 adapter

    Here are some photos with Epl1 and Orion 15. First one was raw file imported in Lightroom and just added some contrast,cropping,... and the other two are jpegs straight out of camera:

    All three shots are f8. I really like size and colors on this lens.
