At first I was unsure of purchasing a lens from Fedka, the premium over various sellers on eBay seemed to be too much. But when I needed a J-12 fast (shipping on eBay was around a month) I sucked it up and bought one here.
I will never buy russian camera gear from anywhere else now.
I could not believe the condition of the lens, it looked to be brand new. No scuffs on the body or glass (and with that huge rear element that is a feat!), the paint had not worn, all of the markings looked as sharp as they did when the lens was made. Focus and aperture adjustments were silky smooth.
The lens was also packaged very well and arrived faster than I even expected!
Great sharp contrasty lens for a phenomenal price.Rating: [5 of 5 Stars!]
