Speaking of Russian 50mm lenses, I got an inexpensive one of these 53/1.8 lenses for my Kiev 4a. I have a Jupiter-8m and a pre-war collapsable Sonnar 50/2 (my main lens at the moment
)for it right now and eventually I'll find a Sonnar 50/1.5 that I can afford. But in the meantime, what can I expect from this one?
