Build quality

Its from Russia with love!
All metal and is solid as a rock.


Conclusion

Apparently can some old Russian lenses image and built quality vary from lens to lens.
But this good looking piece of metal and glass just amazed me at all points!
And its not all look it also performs great at all apertures.

The focus is not as smooth as my Jupiter-8 but this can be just my lens that need some lubrication.
Aperture ring is stepless and is well placed at the front of the lens.

In short this is a awesome lens that won't disappoint.
