Jupiter-9, 85/2, Black Finish

SKU: j9ltm68063 Category:


The Russian Jupiter-9 is a high quality telephoto lens for the Leica type rangefinder cameras.
It is a copy of Zeiss Sonnar 85/2.

The Jupiter-9 is one of the most desirable Russian lenses in both Contax and Leica (39 mm) mounts. It produces very pleasant images (portraits in particular),
and you can control depth-of-field with a wide range of aperture settings.

The lens mounted on a Leica (or Leica copy) has a nice balanced feel.
