That Fed looks like a "keeper".  Those images are as sharp as any I've seen.
I don't recall what camera you were going to use it with.  Is it on a Leica
or one of the Russian copies?  I'm always curious about the reported
differences in the flange-to-film-plane distances, and how they would work
with my IIIa or IIIf.
Jim, I'll be using it on all my Leicas, including a IIIc.  The images in 
the gallery were made with either a Bessa L or Leica CL.  I've never 
experienced the back-focus problem some have mentioned with any of my FSU 
lenses whether Fed, Jupiter or Helios (M42).  Maybe I've just been lucky.
