Assorted cameras and lenses #3
Spring cleaning, #3 (of 3)
Working too many hours recently and haven't been able go through the mounds of gear I buried myself in last year. I'll be posting a second ad shortly with some rangefinder lenses - I'll obviously combine shipping if anyone wants multiple items.
I'm open to different payment options - paypal, check, etc. I'm also open to discussing possible trades - I'm primarily shooting with rangefinders (LTM) and medium format at the moment.
If anyone wants more detailed pictures, let me know and I'll send something your way.
Jupiter 8 Kiev Mount, with slip on front cap
My Kiev came with 3 J8s. No noticeable difference between the three. This was the last one I used so I know the most about its condition.
Not the prettiest lens cosmetically but it produces very nice shots. The glass is in good shape with only a slight bit of dust. Not mint by any means but pretty darn good. And it takes fine pictures.
Summarit 50mm 1.5, lots of cleaning marks, no caps
This lens has significant cleaning marks. The glass is a bit hazy. The body has a small engraving from a previous owner near the lens mount. The focus is slightly stiff. The lens does take interest, dreamy pictures. I was holding onto it as an effect lens for a long time but it doesn't fit my style of shooting at the moment.
I had a hard time getting shots which I feel adequately demonstrate the cleaning marks. If there is interest expressed here, I'll try to get better pictures.
While this look works well for b+w, I wasn't as successful with color. I don't have a good example as the only color film I was shooting at the time was 20 years expired. Here are a few shots in case they are of use:
1275757. To answer others questions, its a screw mount lens
