Mir-1, 39 mm SLR Mount

The Russian Mir-1 is a high quality wide angle lens for the Soviet SLR cameras.
This Mir-1 was made for the early Zenit SLRs (Zenit, Zenit-S, Zenit-3, Zenit-3M, Kristall and some early Zenit-E), but its optical registration (back focus) is the same as in the Universal Pentax Screw Mount, so with a simple 39 to 42 mm adapter ring (not included but can be made or found) the lens can be used with any 42 mm Pentax Screwmount camera.
Also, with a special adapter, this lens can be used with the Start.
The lens' design was awarded Grand Prix at Brussels World Fair in 1958 and every Mir-1 has a "GRAND PRIX" Brussels 1958" engraving on the lens barrel.
