Recently I bought a Zorki 4 with Jupiter 8. When it arrived I was really shocked
- so bad it was. OK, so let's get to work: Zokri is pure mechanics - it can be CLAed (even though it lacks the flash sync block
) but the Jupiter has scratched front element (as if someone used sandpaper to clean it) and 5 aperture blades are missing! There are only 4 in there... seems someone thought it was only worth for parts, took the blades and sold the camera. And I, fooled with GAS, bought it.
At least I have some "project" to do
If anyone here has a Jupiter 8 and:
a) is willing to part with it and donate it for parts for my Jupiter 8
b) needs spare parts other than front element (all other lenses are clean - no fungus, no scratches and it is the type with "Industar-like" focusing)
then please contact me.
