PT2615. In the 1993 and 1994 years, when Kiev rangefinder cameras were no more produced, Arsenal Factory of Ukraine prepared a special series of “Helios 103” with “Menopta” name intended to substitute original "Jupiter 8" lenses on overhauled Kiev rangefinders. Lenses were also sold separatedly (source: Luiz Paracampo).
