    Here are couple of pictures I made ​​with this lens.
    The adapter that I bought can be adjusted with three small screws
    so that the markings on the lens can stand in the right place (not inverted).
    Camera is NEX C3, some pictures are cropped.

    Hey Dr.S, welcome to the forum. :)

    Some of that old Russian glass continues to amaze me. I really like that 3rd shot. :)

    Yes, welcome! And, hm, I may have to check that on my LTM-NEX adapter, which now makes my Industar-61L/D 55mm f/2.8 connect 90° from where it "ought" to be. Thanks for the tip!

    Doctor, you're a genius (or at least a lot more curious than I am)! Three screw adjustments later, and my Industar is oriented correctly.

    I discovered the possibility of adjustments of the adapter because two of three screws were missing.
    The lens almost fell off.:eek: Or the camera could if I was holding it for the lens.:eek:
    Although I am a novice/amateur I want to say a few details about this lens.
    Due to the smoothness of focus/aperture ring it is suitable for a very patient people.
    Mainly for experimenting and playing with non moving targets closer than 20m if light is not perfect.
    Focus peaking is not sufficient for accurate focusing. Really need to use mf assist.
    And yes, I will gladly post a few more pictures.

    I recently found one of these lenses in a box at home - I have tried it on my A7r and it is generally very good. I agree that focus peaking doesn't provide accurate enough focussing unless the lens is wide open but the magnified focus works very well. There are no click stops on the aperture ring which makes it difficult to stop down without looking at the numbers on the lens barrel. I particularly like it for vintage feel black and white
