I wanted wide angle; couldn't afford an SA, Couldn't wait for a Heliar- won
a Russar 20mm on E-bay.....(yes, I'm given to impulse bidding!)
Any comments from anyone who might own this? The price seems reasonable...
around $380... AND comes with finder and caps! (noticed from the seller's
address that he's a dentist- god love the health profession for used
So, any comments from happy/unhappy owners? The only experience I have with
'really-wides' is a Vivitar 19mm with a Canon FD mount (distinct corner

Regards to all,
