I’ve only purchased two vintage lenses prior to this one - Helios 44-2 and Takumar 135. Newbie question: Is a C/Y lens adapter what I need? Is this the same as Contax-Kiev? Did not realize the focus ring is not part of this lens. C/Y adapters I’ve seen on eBay do not appear to have a focus ring… when I search “Contax-Kiev adapter” only C/Y adapters come up.Any advice is appreciated.

Jupiter 8M

I have adapted mine with a generic helicoid (from eBay) so I can get better minimum focus distance. Cheaper too
