I like my Jupiter 8 also. The lens had to pass 31 lines/mm at the center and 14 at the edges to be certified by the factory. I presume these are 'wide open' values. The less expensive Industar seems to have better specs, but can't be tested at F2.0 because its a F3.5 lens.

The first lens is the F3.5 Industar, which was required to get 38 lpm center and 20 lpm edge. The second lens listed is the F2.0 Jupiter-8 which was required to get 31 lpm center and 14 lpm edge to pass.
