Description

Condition 99%. Superb, mint example of this reworking of the Jupiter-3, Soviet Sonnar copy. This is a very rare and interesting lens, as although Zeiss make a current 50mm F1.5 Sonnar, it is not the same Bertele design as the original lens that was first available some 80 years ago in Contax and Leica mount. This new Jupiter-3 is the same design, featuring seven elements as opposed to six. Other desirable features include a reworking of the register on early Jupiter 3 lenses, meaning this will focus correctly on L39 and M (via adaptor) bodies; also, it has a closer focus distance of just 70cm, modern coatings, nery nice build quality, and a fully circular aperture at all stops. The lens is definitely an art lens, and gives beautiful bokeh, light flare and great contrast. It's not going to be as edge to edge sharp at F1.5 as the modern ZM Sonnar, but then neither is the original. This is a lens to add drama, character and soul to your pictures. Condition is NEW OLD STOCK. Superb, unmarked optics, smooth focus and aperture. Unmarked barrel. Boxed with manual, M adaptor and front & rear caps.
