Rare Jupiter-3 1.5/50 RF BLACK version
Carl Zeiss Sonnar copy
M39 Leica LTM + Leica M adapter as a gift

The Jupiter-3 50 mm f/1.5 lens forms a very beautiful, plastic image with good contrast, has a 'characteristic' pattern. An amazing combination of softness and sharpness, beautiful bokeh - made it very popular with portrait photographers. 

Aperture iris, rounded, 13 petals. Changes manually smoothly, not discretely, so any intermediate values ​​​​are possible. This feature is also appreciated in video shooting for creating effects.

Jupiter-3 super-fast lens with coated optics for Leica, Bessa, FED, Zorki and other rangefinder cameras with same lens mount and with same optical registration.

It was a replica of the German Carl Zeiss Sonnar 1.5/50.

It can be mounted on any LTM RF camera, include modern Bessa cameras, and it can be used with many digital Micro 4/3 cameras with the adapter. In the main, most Soviet lenses are exceptionally good and this is no exception!

At f/1.5 it really is all about the background. For portraits with the background way out of focus you can get very very smooth bokeh.

The Jupiter-3  can be used on mirrorless cameras such as the Sony NEX or the Micro 4/3 system cameras.
