Jupiter-8M, 50/2

The Russian Jupiter-8M is a high quality lens for the Contax/Kiev type rangefinder cameras. It was sold as a standard lens on the most common Kiev models - Kiev-4 and Kiev-4a. The lens is an improved version of the original Zeiss Sonnar 50/2 copy, Jupiter-8.

The aperture dial was engraved on both sides of the lens, so the settings are visible regardless of the lens position. The aperture was set in the fixed (with stop-clicks) positions. And, of course, the name was changed to Jupiter-8M.
