Hi Everyone,

I'm looking for a Mir 1B 37mm f//2.8 to mount on my ZenitET. Found one on ebay with this serial no. N0000151.

Is that a prototipe from the early days?

Thanks!

I guess this is lens made in year 2000.
The lst 2 digits of the year are equal to 2 first digits of serial number.

Thanks Alfa2,

I've noticed it after I bought it, the date is written in the paper from VOMZ plant. I thought that this lenses where produced only until the first 80s.
By the way, the serial no. starts with 000, so it should be a pre-series.

All clear, thanks guys! I just thought that this lens was not produced in those years.
By the way, the lens works and has a nice bokeh, not nice as the Helios f\2 :)
