I received the 3 lenses.

I'm still waiting for the adapter, but for now, the 2 jupiter lenses seem to be in better shape. The industar has a lot of play on the apterture ring and the focus ring is not smooth at all.

That's normal. The I-61 aperture ring always feels loose (did on all of mine, anyway) but works fine. Does yours have click stops and 10 blades? If so it's the "good" old version. Try working a few drops of lighter fluid into the focus helix and surprise yourself
