    The Jupiter 3 is a m39/ltm/l39 mount copied lens design from CZ's 50mm 1.5 Sonnar. It has a nice soft glow and wonderful bokeh shot wide open at 1.5 (it appears to not be coated, so there is little to no contrast without PP) the aperture ring has no click stops so i have to always check to see what it is if it accidentally gets knocked about. stopping down sharpens the image noticeably and cuts down on glare. it's a lovely lens to use compared to other 1.4 lens I have. this classic design has a signature that is perfect for portraits shooting.

    if you like this lens, you can also get a canon version or if (at 4 times the price) and a Carl Zeiss one (also $$$$$). the jupiter 3 is also expensive because of this association, but you can find some under 300$ if you're lucky.

    All shot on my EP3 with monochrome filter.

    thanks! believe it or not, the focus was spot on, but at 1.5 there's that glow you can see in the pictures whether you like it or not.

    Beautiful pictures
    Soft is nice, it's more like film, like it :smile:

    I used to have a J-3 but it's Kiev/Contax mount, I didn't find an adapter for it
