This is a later Black Jupiter-8 50mm F2 in Leica Thread Mount. I optimized this lens for close-up and wide-open use for the Leica standard. It also has a fresh Lube job. Optics are very clean, a little oil on aperture blades, but has no affect on operation.





A little wear to the paint, as shown.





Wide-Open and close-up on the Leica M8:



100% crop (pixel peeping):




100% crop: focus optimized for close-up and wide-open, which required a custom shim job.



Color at F2:

Infinity at F4:


Russian lenses are not made to the Leica standard, and must be adjusted for use.

$70 Shipped in the US or Canada via 1st Class, $75 anywhere else shipped International First Class. $85 shipped International Priority Mail. Paypal, Personal Check, Money order. I reserve the right to hold shipment until check/MO clear.

Just to add: a Leica Thread Mount to M-Mount adapter is required to use this lens on an M8, M9, and other M-Mount cameras. I used a $15 adapter (not included) for these images.
