    Didn't think the lens would be quite this sharp when I got out to actually playing with it out in field shooting. (click to download the full jpg, ~ 3-5MB)

    On the first two here, distance of the statue probably around 40ft from me or so, note in the full image you can actually read the plaque. The florals were next to the wetlands area and were 60-70 feet from me, note you can actually see some of the bees in the full display.



    The wolf one was about 20-25 feet from me, at f/4.5 (half way between 4 and 5.6).


    I initially did some quick test shots here: https://www.mu-43.com/f40/jupiter-11-135-4-my-e-p3-33181/ but wasn't anything I would consider actually "trying".

    Today I shot the following with the Jupiter-11

    looks good. i was thinking of getting one as I have a Jupiter-8 that is also sharp but the size is kinda putting me off a bit. i know, who cares right? ;)

    The Russian 135mm lenses are all great.
