Overview of Jupiter-8 1: 2 F = 5cm P

This lens is practically no different from Jupiter-8 2/50... Jupiter-8 1: 2 F = 5cm P - is a standard lens for many rangefinder cameras. To understand how Jupiter-8 1: 2 F = 5cm P works, just look at the review of his brother Jupiter-8 2/50. There is also a version of the lens with a black frame, and with the Contact-Kiev mount.

The letter 'P' in the name of the lens speaks of coated optics. I did not notice the differences in enlightenment by eye. The same goes for the image quality of two lenses with and without a 'P'.

Of course, a rangefinder lens on a reflex camera can only work as a macro lens.

  • Ivan

    Yes, the picture is really unique, I look at the review and the impulse in my soul, I also buy such a lens for myself, but then I turn on my mind, oh, long-range, and I rarely shoot macro, it will just lie on the shelf.

  • Inzoom

    The drawing is called plastic.
    Go to the film, and shoot with rangefinders :)

    • The

      You take a mirrorless camera and smile with all your teeth. I don’t understand at all why you are carrying these coffins behind you now? Only if a tribute to fashion.

  • Tyoma Tru

    Or a mirrorless mirror! I have this only with the letter M Contacts-Kiev. One of the best in my small collection. It’s surprisingly small in size with such abilities, and the background and bokeh are a sight for sore eyes. It's just that the adapter is not so easy to order (But you need to take pictures to Kiev 4A.

    • Sergei

      Darkness, I have Kiev 4A with the same Jupiter 8M p. How to install it on Nikon, which adapter is needed?

    • Julia

      Good afternoon!

      And what kind of adapter is needed to put such a lens on a DSLR? What is the correct type of bayonet mount for Jupiter 8M?

  • Alexey

    And no one tried to use negative lenses? Can you make changes to the design in order to bring the lens closer to the matrix? If you have experience write.

  • Anna

    Tell the deletant how to fasten it to the 650D Kenon. What kind of adapter do you need?

  • Sergei

    There are 2 lenses Jupiter 8 for the rangefinder, the M39 thread and for the old Kiev is not mirror (bayonet) for 2 tr. post office boss.wret@mail.ru Voronezh write or call 9003023540

  • Jury

    and on the micro4 \ 3 camera (OLYMPUS .. AND TP) it works like a portrait-2/100 mm, and it costs a penny

    • Yaroslav

      you forget about one moment, along with an increase in EGF from a smaller matrix, an increase in depth of field occurs, equivalent to the Crop Factor * current diaphragm, i.e. light mb and like 2,0, but DOF, like 4,0

  • Jura ^ _ ^

    I am amazed at the photo and I catch up with the monocle I am not looking at. Well, "the taste and color ...".

    Alone, scho privablyuє - yogo miniature "nevagomist" on mirrorless cameras.

    Perhaps, the "cinema" is okay to show yourself "for the recognition" ..? Hmm ..
    Arkadiyu, can you be sure, even if you don’t have a mirrorless mirror, add your old look around with normal photographs.?

  • Alexander

    I have such a lens idle at home ...

  • anonym

    This and the mass of lenses in your reviews are created only to take pictures of petals and flowers from 30 centimeters?

    • B. R. P.

      This rangefinder, the SLR will not work differently.

  • Yang

    Not to notice the difference between optics with enlightenment and optics without enlightenment - this says a lot about the narrator.

  • Andrei

    Good afternoon!
    Will this lens fit the Zorkiy first series?
    If you need an adapter, tell me how to find and what to look for.

    • Rodion

      It will do, although usually the rangefinder has a significant spread of the segment - sometimes you need to take it into account. Also will most likely have to readjust the rangefinder. At least with FED it was such a pain)

      • Cucuruzo

        For the future. The sharp-sighted ones already come with a standard flange distance (28,8mm), so there are no problems with them. The only problem is the curtains and initially bent rangefinders. Early FED has such a jamb as the spread of the working segment, but on the post-war such a bug was "fixed"

        • Rodion

          From my own experience, I noticed that often different m39 type u-8 lenses in fact have a different length when compared on the same digital camera with the same adapter.

          • Trueash

            Rodion, hello,
            I faced such a problem: I tried to put the I-26 (with a leash) on the UPC, got a not weak flight over infinity. Is this just a case of a wrong cut of the lens itself?

            • Rodion

              If the adapter is normal, then it may be so. Although there are some kind of krekhodniki too.

              • Trueash

                Thanks for the answer, a little comforted. And then I thought I was screwed up with the adapter.

            • Andrei

              I have 2 Indus-26M, Yupi-8, Industar-50, Industar-61, they work clearly without flying to the bzk. Conventional adapter L39-nex.

  • Andrei

    There is another floodless version of Jupiter-8, which has no review.
    White with aperture scale on the rear lens barrel. I have one from KMZ with number 000694. It was put on Zorky-3, 3C, 3M, 4. Draws very atmospheric. Such as here: http://bar90cameras.ru/zorkijj-3-1955-g-5516670

  • Den

    I screwed it onto a Samsung mirrorless camera. Luxurious bokeh. You can’t confuse with anything and you can’t compare with anything. Only if you take the original. I'm just thinking.
