Russian rangefinder Jupiter-9 85mm f/2 M39 USSR 

BLACK Edition

One of the best russian vintage lens. Great choose for a portrait photography. 
Optical scheme based on the Carl Zeiss Jena Sonnar. 

The Jupiter 9 is a copy of the well known 85/2 Sonnar.

It is a very good lens for portrait: leicaists know it.

The late black versions seem better than the chrome ones; probably a question of coating.

Jupiter-9 is a long focus coated lens for FED, Zorki, Leica, Bessa and other rangefinder cameras with same lens mount and with same optical registration.

First Russian lenses for 35 RF cameras were created at KMZ plant on the base of of Zeiss and Leica equipment, which was imported to the USSR for production towards reparations after WW2.

All the Soviet plants which issued photo equipment (include famous KMZ, LOMO, Arsenal and Litkarino plants) mostly issued military equipment, and little part only were for civil purposes, and those civil goods had enough high quality to receive World glory for best ratio price/quality.

It can be mounted on any LTM RF camera, include modern Bessa cameras, and it can be used with a lot of digital Micro 4/3 cameras with the adapter!

In the main, most all Soviet lenses are exceptionally good and this one is no exception!

Jupiter-9 85mm f/2 - almost telephoto prime lens for 35mm rangefinder cameras with a Leica M39 screw mount.

Using adapters, it can be used on modern SRL-DSRL and mirrorless cameras.
