    And the FED plant (now the FED corporation) is still alive, it turns out. As far as I understand, the truth has nothing to do with the photo anymore. The FED-micron is my first camera. I still remember how well it was made. Tore off the bunk cool. Then the truth is no one knew about the conic. A thing in one word. 72 frames on regular film. Excellent for a child. Only now I remember there was some trouble with the shutter cocking mechanism - my father periodically repaired it.

    How is it “NO FOCUS RING” ??? And the zebra-ring on the back of the lens, WHAT IS THIS ??? As far as I understand, this focus ring is! It has no distance scale engraved. But focusing is like with conventional lenses. I have a similar lens from a photomultiplier, only without the “U” index, but from a photomagnifier! Everything is focused for him. Only the engraving of the distance scale is missing ... Arkady, are you sure that the focusing ring on the Industar-26M-U lens is not turning? ? ?

      Less emotion. This is not a focus ring. It does not rotate (additional indirect confirmation is the absence of distance marking). I have a version of the 'U' for photo enlargers taken from the enlarger. Versions without 'U' are really very similar to this one in the review.

        Very strange ... Very. I have a lens for enlargers, without distance scales. There is nothing written on the side at all, no engravings. But everything revolves and focuses. Everything is like a regular lens. Yes, it is also in a bakelite container with a piece of paper pasted on which is written, “A photographic lens for the“ Industar-26M-U ”enlarger.” Your specimen is very unusual, as it has everything to spin, but you say that it does not spin! Straight some kind of ambush .... :-) Can you twist it harder and it will go by itself !? :-) :-) :-)

        :-) :-) :-) Sending will be more expensive than the lens itself, at times ... :-) :-) :-) The principle is interesting, due to which the mechanism is immobilized. Interesting and HOW it was done and WHY ??? After all, this is essentially a direct constructive deterioration ... And for what and for what purpose - it is not clear ... What is the advantage of stalling the helicoid? (Reflections do not lead to an understanding of this incident. Something like that.)

        ... I had one ... for a long time, in the 70s. Indeed, the ring is firmly planted there. At that time I used it on an enlarger ... But, as some write, I am not going to judge about its “universality”. At that time, my technical knowledge was not conducive to curiosity ... it is possible that there is a locking screw ...

        Less caps and emoticons. And address the question to the labor commune, not to me. The fact remains - in the sources known to me, the I-26M-U was described as a lens without the possibility of focusing. It is logical - the lens does not need such an opportunity for a photographic enlarger. And even harmful.

        And I have Industar - 26M-U. Everything rotates like a regular lens. The condition is perfect, there are no traces of disassembly and interference at all. Therefore, the question actually appeared.

        Well, as it is not clear - the products of the plant are, if possible, unified. The same drawing, both produced on the same equipment ... less unnecessary operations. Remember Zadornov's old anecdote: - We even produced pasta with a diameter of 7 mm ...

    Colleagues, don't fuss! FED-60 cameras were equipped with absolutely similar (externally) lens in the second half of the 2s. At one time, I put a similar lens on a photographic enlarger. And since the magnifier was frail, this lens did not impress with its results ...

    Help me decide. I want to buy a lens on the Pentax K10. Is it possible to purchase Soviet optics and plant through adapters. Is there any possibility of autofocus in this case?

      AF capability is not and never will be. You can use the M42 optics through the M42-PK adapter or whatever it is ...

    Can't you use fur instead of macro rings? Maybe it's easier to focus with them ...

      Why not? The bellows can be used, only they will take you to a different range of the focusing ruler ... and your lens will work at even shorter distances than a simple macro ring.

    Here I came across an industrial 26m without y. And the focusing ring is also tight. As a result, I disassembled - nothing should be spinning there - there is no mechanism, just a one-piece aluminum blank. (Surprised - this is the first time such a copy). Who is interested I can send a photo.

      Yes, everything is spinning there. I took a lens from an old photographer. Two rings are crisscrossed, aperture and focus. focusing with a scale from 1m to 20 and then infinity. Moving the lens as you scroll is very noticeable. It went a bit tight, well, he didn’t even use the force too much. Just a long time ago.

    Gentlemen, dispel all myths

    I disassembled the i-26mu and yes, it really does not focus. But this does not mean that there is no focusing mechanism in it. Its internal structure is absolutely identical to the usual industry, except that instead of the usual lubricant, the helicoid contains a composition resembling paraffin in consistency. It is almost impossible to turn the helicoid simply by hand. I grabbed two parts of the helicoid with pliers and managed to unscrew it. Next, using a lubricant solvent, I washed out all the remnants of this nasty lubricant and laid a new normal lubricant. It turned out to be a workable industry in the normal mode.

    Therefore, those who write here that their industrial focus is not lying, perhaps someone with remarkable strength turned and developed a mechanism.

    I also admit that there may be versions from a single piece of metal without a helicoid. But need photo proof

        No, wait. I-26mU really come in different designs. Sometimes there is no helicoid as such at all - a smooth landing is fixed. Sometimes the helicoid is locked with a screw. Maybe there are other options. Accordingly, there may be no distance scale, although the lens can be focused if there is an “unlocked” helicoid.
