Time to part with my Jupiter 9 85mm f2.0 - Average condition, smooth focus, good optics, lots of cosmetic "silvering", aperture blades are responsive (with some silvering and a little oil - as is the case with many of these) - it won't win any beauty contests but it's rendering and sharpness are well known.




a couple of example shots:

Bokeh in abundance...



At max aperture (look at the hairs on the end of the courgette)Ö



Price: £79 plus P&P (no offers)

Haha! It's a great lens

Top tip! Buy a cheap M42 to Pk adaptor like this one:



Then unscrew the locking clip off:



Screw it onto the lens then as is. Now you have a quick on and off Pk lens, granted it won't lock into position but the focus isn't that tough so should just stay in position.

Great tip! I'll have to give that a go with one of the M42 adapters I have handy here coupled to my Auto-Takumar 55mm f/2.2. Great little lens that is too!

You'll have fun experimenting with this one - it's full of character, and surprisingly sharp with the right settings Pleasure to deal with you again
