Wonder how many people had a lens test chart next to their Christmas tree ?

Hmm, time to dust off my old J12 and get some winter pix

This year we don't have a real winter in most parts of Germany.

Good thread! Those xmas tree pictures are lovely, Thomas. Really nice and festive.

I just got my second J12, so I now have one in each rangefinder mount, and I've noticed something - I can't put a hood on the LTM mount one, but I can on the Kiev one. The LTM one is built so that the whole body of the lens moves forward and back while the front element seems to stay still, meaning the body butts up against any hood that I mount. Is anyone else's like that? And if so, has anyone found a hood that fits?

Anyhow, pictures:

Coldkennels, I've got the two versions of the J-8 and they both take a 40.5 mm screw on lens hood. You get cheap and cheerful chinese ones from ebay sellers like heavystar. It screws on the front aperture ring of the lens.

I'm aware of this - the issue is that the lens hood screws on, but then the LTM lens cannot focus. The body jams up against the "shoulder" of the hood as you focus towards the close-end of the scale. It's a bit annoying, to say the least. I need a hood that doesn't obstruct the focusing mechanism.

I've just checked with the LTM version. Event if I screw the hood as far as it will go, I can still focus down to 1,20 or 4 feet. If I unscrew 1 1/2 turn, then I can get minimum focus, ie 1m or 3 feet 4 inches.
But I never focus that close anyway.

Here's two more with the Kiev 4 :





This one is Jup-12 on Leica IIIa

I Used a lathe to turn a chamfer into the shoulder of a metal hood to make the clearance.

That's exactly what I've been thinking of doing. I'll have to see if know anyone who has access to a lathe locally.

It's good to know I'm not the only one who's had that problem, though. I heard so many people say they were using hoods that I was beginning to think something was wrong with my J12.

A bit more on topic: Rogrund, that top image is fantastic. I don't know what it is, but it really appeals to me. Geometry and a sense of space, perhaps?

Yes, I think its the three dimensional geometry which is supported through the diagonal line separating light and shadow, what makes this image very special.

This is with the Kiev mount version on a Nikon S3 (yes, they can scratch the camera's front plate - but this S3 is already pretty beaten up so it does not matter).

Shooting with the CV35 on my Bessa R as of late has had me thinking
about my much neglected J-12 on my Zorki 2s. Now I have the incentive to shoot it. Here are a couple oldies shot with my lens.
