    I like mine a lot (in M42). I use it primarily for informal portraits of friends and family. One thing, though - the M42 version has a manual aperture ring - eg, you turn the manual aperture ring to open it up wide open to compose and focus, then set your preferred minimum aperture on the ring further to the front, then turn the ring again to close the aperture to the aperture you set earlier. This takes some practice to do it smoothly and reasonably quickly. It only is an issue with me when I'm trying to take a shot of children - they move too fast Mine's not for sale, though

    I recently scored a Sonnar 135 f/3.5 locally that has an automatic aperture - I have to say it's much faster, but in some cases so far the 135mm is somewhat too long for indoor informal portraits. If I could find a Sonnar 85mm with automatic aperture that didn't cost an arm and a leg, that would probably be the ideal lens for me. But, until then, the Jupiter-9 will suffice.
    i can't wait to take a picture of my thumb with this beautiful camera.

    I have an 85/2 that I use on a Canon RF that does great with b/w film. The images seem softer with less contrast in color, but in b/w it has different quality, probably from the lack of coating. I don't want to give mine up although I haven't it much lately. I use several M42 lenses on my EOS digital that I get good quality with even though at times I have difficulty focusing a manual focus lens. I think one can get good results from these lenses for an artistic image when printed.

    Well I guess it will have to be Eblay. Still have to check a few more locals before I have to resort to sellers from Russia. And yes I will be using it with b&w film for artistic prints.
