This old lens was sold for Zenit SLR cameras. This is one of the few Zenit camera lenses that cannot be found for moderate prices, even if it has the compatibility problem. It's reknown for its beautiful bokeh wide open. It's a luminous lens. Wide open it's already sharp. Stopped down it's even better, a very sharp lens. The lens has no close focussing capablities. Size and weight are big. Aperture setting and aperture closing are separate, so be aware. The quality of this old lens is astonishing, hence its higher price, but I think it's worth it.

The M39 Zenit Mount is the same thread as ordinary M39 (Leica), but a different flange focal distance.
