The lens was made at LOMO in 1991 - just before production was completely stopped. So, this is one of the most recent LOMO lenses you can find.
The lens is in excellent condition. It seems that it was used few time only.
Mechanics is fine, very smooth. May be even too smooth for somebody, but this is feature of this version.
Macro function is preserved (may OPF18 lenses come with removed macro optical block nowadays).
Rear part is small enouh to be adapted to any modern camera. At least, it works fine with my OCT-19 to Canon adaper (that has problems with some otehr lenses).
1. Close-up shot of MFU box. Macro isn't engaged.
2. About 60m distance, original image is resized to 1000px width.
3. 100% crop from the picture 2.
4. About 150m distance, original image is resized to 1000px width.
5. 100% crop from the picture 4.
No filters or post processing were applied.
So, the lens is in perfect condition at the moment.
Now, word of caution and forewarning. Inner mechanism of this lens is quite sensitive to strikes. I know how to pack it properly, but even with all caution measures shit happens sometimes. There is a chance to get this lens broken at the other end of the globe. So, share of risk is part of this deal. I'll pack this lens as well as possible, but will not accept responsibility if the lens arrive broken.
