Thanks! I'm fond of this chair shape and the challenge of getting an exposure against a backlit window. I never quite get there - but then there's a lot to be said for scanning the picture as well as one can. Here's the same neg, same scanner but different settings. Not so overexposed but less shadow detail (and I did tweak a bit in Lightroom to get some detail in the area of the seat cushion).

Difficult to scan I guess and to decide for final tones...

Another from my Zorki 4 test roll. Jupiter-12 and Fuji print film. Note the light leak which I had on a few of the shots; I think it comes from the right side of the camera by the takeup spool. Other than that, the camera works well (the lens I already knew was a keeper!).

Thanks! I was positively surprised by the way this photo was rendered, not exceedingly sharp, but nice end to end The delta shaped bokeh is a bit odd though.

I think the characteristic odd triangular shaped oof is very well integrated here.
What was most surprising to is no weird distortion on one or two corners as is usual with this lens wide open and very sharp on top of that.
Great

maybe it was at it's distance sweet spot for f2.8

I have a J12 that occasionally shows flashes of brilliance but will flare badly usually at the edge of the picture. Doesn't matter which body it is on either.

I actually feel that J-12 flares nicely, with moderate contrast loss.
