Yes, that's right. I have a cassette for Kiev-2. Hardly works it for its original camera, but I could use it in an other one. (I have tried it with an exposed film for testing.)

MAAS can do miracles certainly, it costs 12.95 dollars in the U.S. though. In Hungary I cannot get it, no one shop sells this product, which I find a bit expensive comparing to the lens' price..
