A non-scientific comparison, the museum does not allow the use of Tripods. So I bring three lenses and makes several rounds through the museum, try to take from similar angles.

Jupiter-3+, wide-open.



Nikkor 5cm F1.4, wide-open



Canon 50/1.5, wide-open



All with UV filters. The J-3+ uses 40.5mm, Nikkor uses 43mm, Canon uses 40mm.

This particular Canon is shimmed to be best wide-open. Originally it was optimized for F2.8.

I know how you feel- Mine was delivered after the Blizzard of 2016.

I still ran out to shoot my Fence Post. I don't trust a lens until I use it to shoot the fence post...

The next set of comparisons will be with the 1943 Carl Zeiss Jena 5cm F1.5 Sonnar "T" and Nikkor 5cm F1.5.
