    I have an old "Zorkiy-4" with Jupiter-8 M39 optics lying around at home http://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/Юпитер_(объектив)#.D0.AE.. Is it possible to attach it to my Canon 550D using adapters M39-M42 and M42 - Canon EOS?

        The meaning is described in the article, it will be macro like in this article.

    Can the lens from the Kiev-4 camera be used as a macro?

        The Kiev-4 camera has two types of mounts, external and internal. The inner one you in no way fix on the DSLR, because it fits almost close to the film. An example of this is Jupiter-12, Jupiter-8 (not M). The mount is also specific. Jupiter-12 also has a convex lens sticking out far into the camera. I do not give a link to this camera and its lenses in my blog because of "political correctness"

        Hmm ... Only fifty rubles are put into the inner bayonet and nothing more, while they are also used in a different frame on threaded cameras. The given Ju-12 is inserted just into the outer one. But the fact that fifty dollars do not have a helicoid, and a good adapter costs 200 bucks ...

    Arkady, and you tried to shoot on a rangefinder optics with macro rings (in the article they wrote that it turns out super macro)?
    Actually the question is, is there a maximum closed aperture for getting into the depth of field?)

      I tried it, the IPIG remains very small, and the quality of the photos from this Industar is mediocre.

    And here I am pleased with the photo from Industar 61 l / d. Sharpness on top! With rings, a whiter macro comes out! I advise the people who want to try macro on Soviet optics to purchase this glass in a collection!

      I61 has very mediocre sharpness, and 50mm is not enough for convenient macro photography. Better Jupiter 37a and macromech.
      But this is my humble opinion

    I installed, on Jupiter 8, using the ring from under the old filter, an eyepiece lens at minus 4.75 diopters. fixed on glue and a blend of an old FEDovsky. The result was a good portrait lens of the Zonar type. I use with Pentax k20d.

    Hello! Please tell me - I have a Pentax camera, I found old film cameras at home and among them there was a Jupiter-8 lens, how can I screw it to the camera, through the same adapters as to Nikon and Kenon (M39, M42)?

      Most likely he has an M39 thread (there are just different Jupiter-8s, for Contact, etc.), then you need a regular M39-Pentax adapter. But this is a rangefinder lens, it will work like Industar in this review on Nikon.

        Thanks for the answer! Yes, he has an M39 thread. I just sorted out old things and dug up a couple of cameras on which my father took pictures about 20 years ago, one of them is a Fed-5s with a Jupiter-8 lens, the lens is in good condition, so I think why it’s good to disappear))) if you can experiment, for normal money it do not sell.

    This Industar-50 is a universal rangefinder-mirror lens and its “conversion” to a mirror version does not require “efforts and knowledge of the matter” ...
    The rear part of the lens is a "macro ring", which is removed after unscrewing the locking screw, the pusher of the rangefinder is also unscrewed, after which the lens becomes "mirrored".

      Thanks for the information. Many users will not even be able to perform such a simple procedure, because this article shows exactly what there will be no infinity with rangefinders, and does not concern issues of remaking.

      Good day. Redid his Jupiter 8m (mount Bayonet Contact) on Nikon D5000. On the rear cylindrical part of the lens with a bayonet mount, a sleeve with an M42 external thread was put on the sealant. (I ordered a turner). I screw the sleeve into the adapter M42-Nikon. On the front of the lens I planted a -5,25 diopter lens in the frame of the filter. I ordered a lens in Optics (where they sell glasses). The result is infinity. On an open aperture, the contrast is not high. You can make portraits in a light manner. With aperture cover, contrast is normal. It is inconvenient that more than one revolution has to be made on the thread to focus, but it has adapted.

    In a month I go to d300 or d7000 (now - d3100).
    The question is that as many as three lenses were found - Jupiter 8m with a special Kiev bayonet, Industar-5-2 from the deceased, unfortunately, the zenith and the regular Industar-61 from the FED-3 camera, which, to celebrate, even shot a couple of films. On the latter, if I am not mistaken, the bayonet is replaceable. So can I adapt at least one of them for portrait (ideally landscape) shooting with a sufficient focal length?
    Or buy all the same helios?

    Please tell me what can I do with a lens like Helios - 103 1.8. What adapters are needed for it for installation on Nikon d90. And also what can I get using it. By the way, I have not found an article about such a lens on your website - I can let you drive the glass until I figured out what to do with it. Geographically I am in Kiev.

    Arkady, if I understand correctly, then the smaller the focal length, the larger the macro?
