Description
For sale is a 1975 Jupiter-8 50mm F2 lens in EX+ condition, shimmed for Leica. Includes front and rear caps. I used my Leica M9 to adjust this lens for the Leica standard, adding a 0.04mm shim was required, aperture ring re-indexed. I used red nail polish to secure the set screws after adjusting the lens. This lens was very close. Focus is good at F2 throughout the range. This is the Export version of the Jupiter-8, which tend to be built to tighter specifications than others. The glass is in near perfect condition, some very slight wear to the black paint of the lens. Overall I would rate this a 9/10 scale. Price: $70 shipped via First Class mail within the US, $85 shipped via International first class anywhere else. $5 discount for check, money order, or Paypal Gift where you pay the fees. I reserve the right to wait until a check clears before shipping.
