    Something I find interesting is just how many technical articles there are, judging from the graphs.

    I'm impressed by just how great a variation of subject and style the magazines show. If there's a "party line" here it's about five miles wide.

    Yes, exactly. Sure, there's a fair bit of what I had considered "Soviet-style heroic" pics, but there's an awful lot more.

    Year 1957, Issue 12, page 68. At the bottom of the page there's something that looks awfully like a fisheye lens, though no example of the output. That would make it concurrent with the Nikkor, wouldn't it?

    It IS the Nikkor - zooming in, it says "Nippon Kogaku" on it. Which in itself is interesting, I had always assumed that progress from other nations wouldn't be reported in this sort of publication in the USSR.

    Thanks - I didn't think of doing that.
