I have bought the second one listed. It appears to be unserviced, thought the rangefinder coupling cam has been misassembled. Lets see if we can fix that. Registration distance is about 28,45mm

This lens has the old style brown aperture blades. I wonder if they excist with blue ones as well.]]>

I have received a small package from him last week. It was clearly openen and sealed again by the rebels or authorities, but they left the content intact. I was very glad I received it despite the conditions.

Dear Vlad,

If you speak Alexander again. Wish him the very best from me! I really really hope for better times out there, without war.

Best Wishes,

Bought a 1950 KMZ J-3, advertised as way off and fit for use on a mirrorless camera. It was off my 2m at 5m, and the optical fixture was glued into place. 6 hours in acetone. Popped all the glass out of it.


The serial number on the rear fixture shows it to be from a 1943 Zeiss lens. The Tap shows that it was originally finished in Contax mount.


The focus mount is from a ZOMZ J-3, has three setscrews for holding the helical into the mount.


There were a total of Five (!) taps for the guide pins. I'm glass I scribed the correct set before taking out the guide pins.

This was a long-job, 6 hours in acetone and a lot of cleaning loosened paint and glue out of the helical.


Added a 0.48mm Shim and moved the rear module in slightly.

It was worth it, one of the sharpest J-3/Sonnars that I have ever used.

Re-seeing the photos, I think there are probably two different problems:
- the shutters don't move correctly (left part more exposed than the right one). A question of regulation.
- concerning the clear circle in the middle, it's a severe flare right in the center. It sometimes happens. A shade is the only solution.

If Phil is always here...[:)]

Hi. I wonder if someone could tell me how fast should the turret be when 1/400 s exposure is selected. Is there any brake applied at all at that speed or does the turret spin freely (really fast, hitting the end of it's travel relatively harsh)?

Thank you for your answers in advance.]]>
