Hi there again Lately Im much fascinated with this small lens, and am looking for one in good shape for when Ill have the money. Thinking of this it occurred to me that maybe the Russian copy that comes with those funky replicas, or the clearly Russian marked one (dont remember which fed is it), can be an interesting choice since the emlar unless its the collectors red scale one, is a 70 years old design, usually uncoated or single coated. The Russian one is a similar design if Im not mistaken, and could even be multi coated? So what is the deal? Could the more modern Russian copy be equal or maybe a better shooter (no leitz glamour though) than a really old elmar? Or am I really off track? PS: wouldnt mind trading my 15cv for a minty RS.
