    Nice pics, guys! I am eagerly awaiting my Jupiter 8 to arrive from my favorite eBay dealer in Riga. Hope to soon have something to add to the thread.

    first sample shots

    OK, my Jupiter-8 arrived today from Riga, so I walked around the neighborhood to make some test shots... the shots themselves are nothing exciting, just trying to get a feel for this lens, both wide open and stopped-down a bit. I shot in raw and jpeg and most of these are from the raw as processed automatically by Aperture. No further PP

    My copy is a black one from 1976. When you focus it, the whole front half of the lens turns. All these were shot with an E-PL2.

    One of the sharpest legacy primes I've tried on my GH1. It is a black export version from my Zorki-4K.

    Very nice lens and surprisingly sharp wide open, for its age.
