Nice!

I have two Industar 61s made a year apart from the other, one is 53mm and the other 55mm. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Russian sources claim that they were all actually 52.42mm focus length, and just marked slightly different lengths. Why? I have no idea.

Can you go more s*** than this? 🙃
Not sure what that's short for but I'm going with yes, yes I can.

I present to you the 85mm f2 Jupiter-9, in a Kiev/Contax mount, using a cheap off-brand Nikon(S) adapter.

It works. And given that the Jupiter-9s all require an enormous amount of torque to focus, I think it's actually preferable to the M39 mount through an adapter, as focussing will have a tendency to unscrew the lens from the M39 adapter. (I was actually hoping to use one of the Kiev-mount 50s using this adapter, but it doesn't have the internal bayonet needed to mount that)

As I said, it works. I admit I don't find this very practical, but mostly because a 170mm fixed-length equivalent is not really my cup of tea. Hence I haven't done anything in the way of testing, but the image quality itself seems fine.

FWIW I don't think they're supposed to be so tight, it's just that with age the lubricant has deteriorated. Servicing my also tight example has been on my to do list for a long time.

Yes, you're right, they're clearly not supposed to be this tight. I have used a Jupiter-9 in LTM that is much better than the lens above. This seems to be the most common complaint with this lens, though - granted they are pretty heavy beasts so more to move on that old dried up lubricant.

Probably a combination of manufacturing tolerances, the lubricant, and age. I have a Jupiter-8 (50f2) that's particularly bad.

But while I don't have a lot of old Japanese lenses, I don't recall ever having one with this issue.

E-pl8 with SMC Pentax-A 35-70mm F3.5-4.5
Has a "Macro" cq close focus zone on 70mm that I use a lot, not sharp rather soft but delivers the color "match" that I am used to get from the Pentax PK mount lenses

It's a pity that this pretty E-PL2 don't have IBIS.
But here it is, with the Konica Hexanon AR f:1.8/40 mm.

Here's my EPL7 with a Carl Zeiss Distagon 2.8/28 C/Y mount. It also works nicely with my digital Pen-F.

Here are my not particularly unusual adapted Hexanon 57/1.4 and 135/3.2 lenses on an EM10ii. The 57mm is pretty soft at 1.4, but much better at 1.7 and sharp starting at f2. I haven't shot enough with the 135mm, yet, to make any judgements. I thought focus peaking had worked on them when last I tried them a few weeks ago, but it didn't when I tried today.

My first M43 camera - an E-PL2 in early 2011 with the Summitar 50/2.0 off my father's Leica iiiC. Cheap adapter from who knows where.

In another thread, @ektar makes a feeble try to make me look like some kind of "remote brainwasher" to make him go out and get a Konica f:1.8/40 mm pancake!

I don't mean to be mean, but isn't there some personal responsibility involved there somewhere?

But I have promised @ektar conclusive evidence pertaining to my (now) undeniable innocence in the matter!

And here it is:

Yes. That is correct. I have two of them.

That should be evidence enough as proof of my intention to get them all for myself.

Hence my motivation to get @ektar to want one is nil. Why would I make someone a competitor?

I hope it was not a nearsighted beaver that made that error. I could imagine he'd be right peeved to find you in his home.
