m9 + jupiter 8...a lightweight, small, inexpensive, fast lens, which is decent at f2 and superb at 5.6 & 11.

REALLY wish i could use mine on an SLR. Is there an similar, inexpensive lens that has the same Sonnar imaging properties — for Nikon or Canon mount? Something no slower than f2?

The only think close is the Takumar 58/2, which is the widest Sonnar type (that I'm aware of) lens made for any SLR
The Sonnar design doesn't work well for a normal (50mm ish) SLR lens.

Thanks. I think i recently read something about that lens. I may have to bite the bullet and get a cheap Bessa or some such. I thought i was done with rangefinders, but it's always the glass that brings me back.

Jupiters are the greatest bargain 50mm lenses ever. Once properly adjusted (for focus shortcomings on Leica bodies) they are great at all apertures.
My beat up Jupiter-3 blows my coated Elmar (no haze, nearly perfect glass) completly out of the water. Sharper and contrastier at f2.8-f4.0 then the Elmar ever gets. Only downsides: slightly yellowish color rendition & some pincushion distortion.
Bertele's old Sonnar formulas were indeed pieces of art.

took some test shots with my J-8 from Russia, lens flares easily with back lighting especially at f/2 but l love how small and light it is compared to my 50 cron collapsible and 50 Nokton ASPH.

Looks as though you've found a good J8... nice shots. I got lucky too, when I found mine some years ago.

I see from flickr that you used an A7 for these shots. Is this representative of the output from this sensor, or is this more the result of processing? Whichever it is, I'm interested, as I've been pondering the A7 for some time, for using the J8 and other legacy lenses, and I just might be getting close to a decision. What processing software do you use? TIA.

thank you. yes these shots were taken with the A7, fantastic camera for the money if you have lots of legacy lenses, I dont own any Sony lenses, just my collection of FD, Ai-S, OM, M and LTM lenses
One thing to keep in mind is that M/LTM wide-angle lenses (28 and wider) may suffer color shifts in the corners.
I use LR 5.7.1 and I apply very minimal post processing, mostly recover some slight highlights, shadows and contrast on my images.
Here's a before (L) and after (R) comparison of this shot for example

Thanks for the information, taemo - very interesting, and useful.

Trouble is, I'm now getting a sense of sliding inexorably towards the A7...

Just one further question, taemo... a little OT, but here goes: I don't use LR, but I'm considering doing so. However, I'd heard that Adobe has moved everything to the CC system, paid for by monthly subscription payments - is this the case with LR? I've tried Googling this, but the information's somewhat confusing.

If monthly subscription is the only option, LR will be off my list.

you'll love it if you have lots of legacy lenses, also the A7 are dirt cheap now a days, most people are selling theirs for $700, a year ago they were $1400!
only complaint I have is the EVF, it's big and clear but EVF vs OVF, I would always go for an OVF.

Adobe has indeed moved to CC, however you might still be able to grab a retail copy of LR 5.

You can also still buy LR 6; the replacement for 5. They're doing both CC and retail sales still.

I do have quite a few legacy lenses...

I'm quite happy with EVFs - especially the top-end ones. Looks as though I'd better look for a bargain A7...!

Thanks... that's interesting.

Do you happen to know whether the retail sales are set to continue, or have Adobe publicly indicated an eventual shift to subscription for all their main products?

Can one use a finder? Plenty of those in my drawer, I am looking at the "old" A7 for the money, so little so soon.
