    Im looking for a m39 mount camera and lens. I dont have much money to spend on it, I just want to try out a rangefinder camera. I'm looking in the 50-100 range, closer to 50. I would like it to have ha jupiter 8 lens and not sure about the body. I'm located in indiana and can pay with paypal.

    I'm afraid that a nice J8 alone will cost $50 or more these days. You may want to consider a fixed lens RF like the Konica S2 or Yashica GSN which will be closer to your number and are MUCH more reliable both with great lenses.

    Im starting too see prices. Im willing to spend more if I can get a fed 2 with jupiter 8, that is proven to work.

    I can recommend 2 (only 2) FSU dealers that will only sell working gear. One is on ebay his ebay name is hero4g and the other is Fedka.com. The ebay dealer is in the Ukrain and Fedka is in NY city.

    I have NO interest in either except to see a fellow member get a good chance at a good FSU.
