    Cheapest compact 50ish for nex....

    I think this might be it.

    The Industar 55mm I-61 L/D. LTM, of course.



    14.99 + 20.00 shipping from Ukraine. Got it last week and was a bit disappointed by loose and inconsistent focus ring. But 30 minutes with Matt Denton's tutorial on the relube--which they all seem to need, and I have a very nice daylight portrait lens that weighs only 129 grams. It's now tight and smooth.

    Though not as sharp as the elmar 50 2.8, according to rockwell, it seems pretty sharp at F8 to me. I'll post up some pics when I get a chance.

    Does it have the same star shape aperture as the I-61 L/Z (M42)?

    Looks like 6 blades resolving to a hexagon

    a contrast to the big silver thing on the left which had 20 blades.
