USSR Lens Buyer's Guide

Dive into classic Soviet lenses for a vintage look among today's clinical optics.

Soviet lenses have always been a popular and affordable option to get into vintage glass. But which ones to choose?

In this guide I'll take you through a variety of Soviet glass, focusing on the super-adaptable M42 mount which can be used on pretty much any modern camera (DSLR or mirrorless), in a way that helps you identify the lenses you like and provide an easy way to acquire them.

You will also understand Soviet lens naming conventions, learn a few online myths about them, find tutorials and recommendations for disassembly and servicing, read about extremely rare optics and the modern take on well-established optics.
