    Canon P and Jupiter 8 or 3?

    Hello everyone, new to this forum! I've got a Canon P paired with a Canon 35mm 1.8 LTM which is a great setup, but the 35mm frame lines on the canon P are very hard to see especially when im shooting with glasses. Im thinking of selling the 35mm and getting a Jupiter 8 or 3 to make use of the 50mm framelines. Does anyone shoot with one of these lenses on their P? How do you like it?

    Here is a picture of my Canon P with the 35mm 1.8 and a sample photo as an intro to the forums!

    Never sell that Canon lens, that is a serious sin you will pay for, for the rest of your life!

    Besides a JUpiter is so durn cheap, you can easily afford to keep both, just forego a pint or 3 on the pub and you're all set!

    I have a Canon P also, and your post inspired me to bring it out, to support the Canonet f:1,9 i loaded today.... (I have Leitz lenses to support it, another deadly sin if sold.....)

    I agree with Erik. Keep the Canon P and buy the Jupiter. BTW welcome to APUG!

    Could there be a means to make those framing lines more visible?

    Sell the Canon to me, cheap, and use the money for Jupiter.

    I had a P a few years ago, and the 35mm lines were hard to see without glasses. But the P is a wonderful camera and worth the trouble.

    Is it just me, or is the second picture very typical of 1950s/60s Canon LTM lenses? Very saturated colors, yet a slightly retro look.

    Thanks for the welcome! Yes the 35mm frame lines make my eye have to do a panoramic type move from left to right! I will probably just pick up a Jupiter 8 on the cheap and give it a try. I'm still getting used to getting the right exposure with the P without a light meter which can be hit or miss at times, but i do love the look that the 35mm gives me. I really need to try and shoot some B&W through it as i've read the 35mm 1.8 yields great results with B&W.

    Where are you located, delac027? That shot could be L.A.

    Is the shutter curtain wrinkled at all?

    You call South Dakota close to LA? I spent a lot of time in 'Dego when I was in the Navy and took a lot of great pics of the area but alas they are all gone.
