Re: newer J8s not bad.
In reply to John Bean (UK), Jun 5, 2011

Thanks a lot for your advice to both of you.
I've come across this nice article :

The original article is in french (which is great for me :)), but the english translation is on the right column.

The Industar is certainly a bad sample because it has given terrible results. It seems like the best J-8 were made in the fifties and the worst were made in the sixties. The J-3 can give awesome results but it's too expensive compared to the risk to receive a bad sample.

About the I-61, it seems difficult to find a older sample. Maybe I'll buy one later.
