hi, Excellent report. yor F4 results are much better then mine. maybe my specific lens is the problem. I would like to get your idea for replacment lens. I have Salyut with industar-29 and I want to take pictures at F4 or even F2.8, but the focus is not even along the lens plane. Is there a better lens (80mm F2.8 is ieal) with idenitcal mount or possible mount? best regards, amir

There is some medium format Soviet lenses for Salyut (Bayinet V): Vega-12 2,8/90 and MC Volna-3 2.8/80. I think Volna is better performer.

Vega-12 and Volna-3 also cames with bayonet B. I hear Carl Zeiss Biometar 80/2.8 also good lens, but it only for Pentacon Six bayonet, need adapter.

There are no adapter for P6 bayonet lenses on the Salyut, but the opposite exists (B lens to P6 body ring). The whole body can be adapted to accept P6 lenses, but it would be such a waste to modify the older Salyut. You have the Vega-12 90/2.8 (kit lens for Salyut-C/Kiev80), the Volna 3 80/2.8 exists single coated and MC, and there may be some MC Arsat 80/2.8 which is essentially the same as Volna 3. You won’t get the preset stop coupling with any of those lenses.
