newer J8s not bad.

The jupiter 8 is regarded as the best of the soviet 50s by the afficianados--though I know John feels otherwise. At RFF they love the thing.

I tried i-61 LD, only good at f11

but my J 8 is quite good right from the start.

centers are quite sharp from 2.8 on.

another note: while newer i61s and J3s are often not great, the black j 8s are regarded as just fine.
