    FS/FT: Jupiter-8 LTM Lens

    Paypal or money order, shipping from 92116 San Diego, CA. If you aren't nice it'll ship from 22025 Tijuana MEX.

    Front element has light haze so contrast will be somewhat low compared to average. Aperture moves freely, with no detents as usual for this lens. It's from 1958, I think. I've shot some film with it, but haven't developed those rolls yet, so I'm not sure if it is calibrated to Soviet standards or not. I got it from a dealer at the San Diego Camera Show about 6 months ago (huge back log of film). Rear element is clean/clear.

    I shot some macros with it held in front of my non-film camera and sharpness was good. I polished up the barrel a bit, but it's still definitely user condition.

    $45 shipped CONUS. Inquire if worldwide. Trade for 4x5 film, instant film.

    Looks like 1961 to me. Great lens. I had one from 1956 which took terrific pictures.

    Thanks for the correction, Jon. I was working off memory which obviously needs a CLA.

    I try to lubricate mine from time to time with a nice bock style beer.

    I got a newer one of these recently - hoping someone snags this one. The aperture wheel on mine has no fixed stops, which is a nice option.

    The 61 in the serial number is the year of production. No need to tax the memory anymore. :-)

    Indeed, Mr. Goodman's post reminded me of "the code" they used to date these. Thanks, Richard!
