making some order in the cabinet, I've re-found a lens arrived many years ago along with my Kiev-10 camera.

It is very compact, heavy and well-built. It bears the serial number 71026.

Looking through the lens once mounted it on the camera, it gives a "yellowish" vision, as expected from lenses with lanthanium glass elements, like the well-known Pancolar f:1,4 of the Pentacon Super.

The diaphragm transmission is a little sticky, due to the old lubricants, but I will send it to be fixed.

Does anyone be so kind to give me more info re. this lens?

All the best,

Elmar, I hope you realise that you will simply have to post some of the photos you take with it?

Thank you for your kind reply, Juhani.

Yes, the Rubin-1 is the well-known soviet zoom inspired by the Voigtländer Zoomar, that equipped the leaf-sutter Zenit.

This Rubin-2A is a little smaller than the well-known Jupiter-11 4/135 Avtomat with Kiev-10/15 mount.

Attached, some pictures of the lens itself and attached to my Kiev-15TEE

I used to have Rubin-1, but that was for Zenit-4. Didn't even know that a version 2A was made for Kiev?

Best regards,
