Some nice advances have been made in the last >fifty years. I didn't own a single Russki lens when I tested the Komura. Tried it on Summitar and collapsible Summicron. For once, I agree with Pop: "muddy images distinguished only by vague blotches of color", or words to that effect. I encourage all on the list to try the Komura 2x tele-converter: these are still available new, I believe, from Cambridge, that paragon of lens salesmanship.
