Zenitar-M 50mm 1.7

Kit lens that came with the Zenit 19 Camera.
I think it is a Russian copy of a Planar design (the Auto/Manual aperture switch is the give away) but I could be wrong about that.
As far as I can tell, this is the fastest 50mm Russian lens for a 35mm SLR camera.

Pictures are straight JPEG straight out of the camera, re-saved in gimp at 90% quality (to save space, I could barely see a difference).

This lens is now offered for sale on ebay:
