Additional information:

The Mir is a family of wide-angle photo lenses, made in the USSR.

The Mir-24 35 mm f/ 2(Russian: "Мир") is a wide-angle lens with a single- or multi-layer coating for SRL cameras.

The M42 screw mount version was manufactured by the KMZ.

The Arsenal Factory (the Vega Factory) also produced the MC Mir-24N bayonet variant  (the Nikon bayonet mount), based on the same optical scheme, but with a different barrel construction.

The lens construction was equipped with a switchable instant-return aperture.

The Mir-24М and the MC Mir-24М differ in lens coating only. The version with multi-coating (MC) is much better resistant to side and back light.
