Hi Antonio,

An ultra rare lens... Is it yours?
This lens is for sure one of the last mysteries concerning Fed...

Thanks for sharing.
Jacques.

Hello, Thanks Jacques, thank you Pierre Tizienne. Yes, this lens is mine, just like my other Fed Helios 113 - 40mm / f1.8 lens for Leica M. These are prototype lenses, perhaps produced for a Fed 6 TTL project. I bought these two lenses in the 90s, in a flea market of Polish, Russian and Ukrainian sellers, here in my city in Pescara (Italy). In those years I was enrolled in the club of Mr. David Tomlinson. Mr. D. Tomlinson wrote to the Fed industry for information on these two lenses. The chief workshop Fed replied that the two lenses were original and produced by Fed and added that the Fed industry had also produced a third 28mm wide-angle lens. I agree that Mr. D. Tomlinson remembers these facts and could confirm my memories.
Best regards.
Sorry for my English.

Hi, Pierre, thank you. Yes, I took some pictures only with the Fed Helios 113, 40mm lens, but I can not find these pictures right now. As soon as I will, I am going to take more pictures and you will be able to see them. I only remember that the optical performance was good. See you soon. Best regards.
