    Cons: Soft at 26mp crop sensor wide open, better at f/2.8+. Tested 4 versions, one made in 1955, 3 others from 1960 to 1988. They all are, mostly identical. Not really fast, f/2 is barely usefull Low contrast. Bad coupling with focuse-peeking, very difficult to catch the focuse. Jupiter 37a, in contrast, has no problem with it, so it is not just common old lens issue but the design of the lens. MFD is like 0.6 m on crop sensor, can`t really get to close. Need go find a good exemplar that is clean and not stuck. Notorious USSR QC issues, you can have a really bad one if unlucky.

    Pros: Bokeh is really nice and unique. Bokeh is still strong at f2.8. Cheap. Looks cool on the lens if it is a silver early variant.

    Summary: Always wanted to try it on DSLR but couldnt, with XT-30 i finally managed. Cheap bokeh generator, but i really struggle to catch a focuse on that particular manual lense. Lens worth using at f/2.8+, it produces sharp enough images for dreamy portraits, but MFD is so damn big, that makes me consider selling that lens and by a TTartisan 50mm with MFD over 35cm. Nice company to kit lens for some blurry portraits, but i think, better bying some chinese mf lenses, at least for Fujifilm, they have more resolution and same old-school bokeh + made to work fine with focuse-peeking.
