    I already had a LTM adapter for my Pen (which I rarely used for the Industar-61LD 55/2), but I managed to dig up my Jupiter-11 135/4 that I had stashed with my old Fed-2 rangefinder. Just did a quick test of the lens on some of my other stuff at f/5.6.

    Mounted on the Pen

    full image

    100% crop on the point of focus

    *Manual Focus (duh)
    *Minimum focusing distance is quite far (2.5m/8ft)
    *Obvious chromatic fringing [note the chrome lip on the 50/1.4]
    *Out of focus quality is a lil... weird (almost chalky looking)


    *Can be dirt cheap (I got this with my Fed2 which also came with the Industar-10, Industar-61LD, and this J11 all for around 40$)
    *Pretty solid ring, and aperture ring is step-less
    *Aperture has 13 aperture blades
    *Rather sharp for such a cheap lens
    *Contrast is decent

    Bokeh Test


    Flare Test (Sun about 20˚ off to the right)


    Flare Test (Sun inside of frame).


    100% crop off that one indrect flare (f/5.6), focus distance roughly 65ft away (around 20 meters on the lens)

    @ KBeezie:

    Welcome to the forum!

    You've got a nice example of that lens - looks like it is a later-production KOMZ model. Have you tried out the Industar-10 and Industar-61 yet?

    I've tried both, not quite as nice as the 135/4 in regards to sharpness and contrast. the Industar-10 (collapsible, but won't really "collapse" in a E-P3), is soft as hell.

    I did in the past upload shots of the lens mounted plus a basic sample on my deviantart account:

    But the three lens I use just bout all the time with my E-P3 is

    17/2.8 kit lens that it came with
    Pentax-M 50/1.4 ( example: Karl Tired Out by *KBeezie on deviantART )
    Tamron SP 90mm f/2.8 1:1 Macro (Adaptall-II) (example : Late Summer Grasshopper by *KBeezie on deviantART )

    My basic set of "Orphan" lens : The 'Orphan' Lens by *KBeezie on deviantART (The only autofocus lens I have for my Pen E-P3 is the 17/2.8)
