Leica Showcase Jupiter 8


Hall of Famer
Apr 3, 2013
"The Jupiters adjusted for an M-Mount camera should work fine on a screw-mount camera"- is generally true IF the cameras make the same assumptions for the image plane. Some manufacturers made different assumptions of how film sits in the chamber. The famous one: Konica Hexar M-Mount was "ever-so-slightly-different" from a Leica M-Mount.

With your lens: my M9 has always been in good agreement with film cameras. The M Monochrom- slightly different optimization for shooting with various filters. I increase the shim slightly for optimizing a lens for Orange and Red filters. With a film camera- not as critical.
