Thanks, fer! Serial on mine starts with 64, so I'm guessing it's from 1964, like the Zorki-6 it came with. This was obviously stopped down quite a bit, at full aperture the rendering is a lot softer.

Thanks Erik, and all!
Alex from Ukraine said that my J-8 was the original lens on my Zorki 4.
I wonder if it will register on the Leica Standard, and be as nice? Since it is a '57 what are the chances it is 28.8 FL ? I guess only some test shots will tell...

all beautiful!

specially like nukecoke first (seagulls on Ektar)
and grouchos_tash first (rope and leaves) which has a wonderful volume and I find tastefully composed


grouchos_tash :

Which serial number on your J-8 ?
It is a silver KMZ ?

Thanks!

I had a look at the lens when I got home; it's a chrome model with the serial number 5777355

A man on a bus. by Dmitry Goloub, on Flickr

1/200 f4 ISO1600 on Sony NEX F3, processed in RNI app.

This is a black KMZ J8, it's extremely sharp. Although, I can't tell the color of coating, it's like yellowish-green but very transparent. I've also got another J8, an older silver one that has very intense blue coating.

This is the silver KMZ J8, both shots at f2 on Zorki-4 on Ilford PAN400 pushed to 1600ASA. Sadly, it has a small cleaning mark on front element. It affects photos only when shooting in the dark (at night), the lights have a glow stretched like this scratch.

A couple examples with the Jupiter 8M with an adapter I put together myself. It's a bit of a kludge. The lens is just jammed into an M42 focusing helical which is screwed into a short M42 to micro 4/3 adapter, specially made for this purpose.
