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.

Testing a Jupiter 8 or two

I tested two Jupiters and found what most know: the later is softer.

So here is lens 1 a la version Jupiter-8 at F2

Older Jupiter-8, right hand lower corner, at F2

See the bad bad quality?

and that is awesome sort of - remembering it is at F2.
My summicron would not allow such a portrait picture with its shallow DOF.
What I first saw as back focus (the ears) renders the face well.
My wife was brooding on me buying a lens, sorry ...

So my search is definitely to such a Sonnar design.

Jupiter-8 (1957 chrome version) on my Leica M 240. Superb performance for the price, in my opinion.




Another one: Jupiter-8 on my Kiev-2, again from 1957. Absolutely nothing to complain about with this lens. This was shot with Tri-X at 200, developed in D-76.

Comparison between a Jupiter-8 and post-war Carl Zeiss Sonnar / Opton 50mm F1.5 ... slightly different colour-cast and contrast between the two lenses. Jupiter-8 on the left, Zeiss Sonnar on the right.

Camera: Kiev 2a
Film: Fuji Superia 200

[IMG]Train tracks by Luke Banks, on Flickr[/IMG]

Picked up my first Jupiter-8 online recently and was disappointed when it arrived as the focus was stiff enough as to be unusable. Gave it a full CLA using the Kim Coxon instructions (what a lifesaver!) and couldn't be happier now that I've got my first test shots back. Focus seems to be bang on across all apertures and distances and there's not a single mark on any of the glass. Very impressed by this inexpensive little beauty.

Shot with R3A on Fomapan 400, developed in Fomadon (Rodinol), scanned through V750.

(Apologies if anybody noticed the multiple attempts at posting this, I couldn't get the image to embed.)

one more:

1955 Jupiter-8 at f2.8 with H-4 ND filter (FSU nd filter)
on Portra 160 (shot @100). CLE. Lab scan (Frontier SP-3000)

Maybe the FSU ND filter took away some sharpness, but still very happy about how this J-8 renders volume.

Three dusted off (literally) from the last roll that'd been hanging in the office for the past 6 months.







All Contax II (1936), J8 (1955 serial number from memory).
