These are 1980s Russian cinema lenses, NOT rehoused still photo lenses. At the time, these were the highest performing lenses being made Russia, and their performance is still impressive today. Wide open the super speed lenses have low contrast, and highlights bloom. Stopped down to T2 and contrast and sharpness increases a lot. At T2.8 they are quite sharp. They flare easily and in a very beautiful way. Their unique irises allow you to render bokeh that is either circular or a dramatic flower petal shape depending on what stop you shoot at. This characteristic alone will make your work stand out in a world where 90% of modern lenses have rounded 9-bade apertures.
Also worth noting, focus breathing is really well controlled in this set.
These lenses are now rehoused in modern, reliable mechanics. The focus throw is now 330 degrees and buttery smooth. Close focus has been improved on most of the lenses. The all have matching 95mm fronts and gear positions.
