Very rare MC-version Jupiter-9 85mm f/2 (export version of Jupiter-9)
This is a very rare MC version of the Jupiter-9 lens.
Hailed along with early(to 1965) versions as the best edition of this very fine lens.
One of the best russian old lens. Great choose for a portrait photography
There are many Jupiter-9 85mm f/2 lenses currently on sale on the secondary market at quite attractive prices (the MC version is rare, though). It is better to give preference to lenses that were exported (Jupiter is written in Latin letters), white/silver lenses before 1965 and black MC lenses.
Equipped with a 15-blade iris diaphragm.
Jupiter-9 is a replica of the Carl Zeiss Sonnar 85mm 1:2
The lens is very good as a portrait lens. It produces a fairly sharp, but plastic and three-dimensional image. Due to the low resolution and low contrast, it transmits halftones well and conceals skin imperfections. Pleasantly soft focus.
Usual shipping time (with tracking) to EU 7-17 days, USA and Canada 9-35 days, other world 12-45 days. In very rare cases it may be due to customs issues or holiday delays.
