    Am I the first one to post shots with this lens?

    Great sharpness and incredible colours. I envy those colors in my GH2. :eek:

    Nice shots! I had one for a while on my D200 but the limited focal range on a Nikon meant I sold it despite loving it's rendering. I should have held onto it...

    Thanks. This is my second Jupiter 11. I bought the first, an 11a, a few months ago for £11 on eBay. Great condition but the focus was so stiff it would unwind itself off the adapter. It being a simple lens I felt I might be able to dismantle it, regrease and re-assemble. In the event I broke it!

    I'd only taken a few shots with it but could see its potential so had to get another. This one, an 11 from 1968, looks pretty scruffy but has clean optics and a much more manageable focus ring.

    It was only £15 – there's no reason not to have one at that price. Why not get another?

    I might well pick up an adaptor and another one - legacy lens are great fun to play with. I've yet to try my manual Nikkors on the GM1 (still awaiting an adaptor from China).

    A couple of quick shots while the kettle was boiling for my mid-morning coffee yesterday. This is my 3rd Jupiter 11, a chrome, ex-Kiev fit, now M42 fit, red "P" example.

    Here's a Video off the Jupiter-11 on an EM-5 at my brother's graduation today.



    And to give you an idea of how far back we were (since we could only photograph from our seats), a shot off the Olympus 12mm f/2.0

    Terrific stuff gents. What f-stop are you all using? I have an 11a ltm version from '53 that I need to get out and get some light through it.

    Most of the shots above are wide open at f/4, too dark to stop down any in the stadium, and the others usually around f/4-5.6 for the bokeh.

    Hi, how big are these lenses and which mount do they use?

    Thanks,

    Normally M42 screw, but some versions use the Soviet equivalent of T Mounts.

    It's a reasonable weight for an all metal lens - around 350 grams. Very similar performance to the Carl Zeiss MC-Sonnar 135 3.5 - both are excellent choices. There is a Jupiter 11 model without the a - get the 11a version - it's much sharper imo. The J37 has it's fans (I'm not one of them). My favourite Soviet 135 is the Tair 11A as it produces beautiful bokeh at all apertures, but it is a substantial beast ...

    Mine is a leica thread mount (M39).

    Shot of it mounted onto an E-P3

    fC7y3wS.

    And in comparison to my E-M5 with other adapted lens:

    Another shot with a cropout showing details closer to 100% (at ISO 1600 , 1/125th, f/4)
