The Russian Collection
Mar 13, 2013

No ramblings this time and just some photos.

Tom is always going on about the Russian Jupiter lenses and he has a very good point, if you can find some good copies the lenses are actually quite excellent and given the price are a much better alternative for some rarely used focal lengths than spending 5-10x the price for any Voigtlander, Zeiss or Leica equivalent lenses.

They are quite well built and have a seamless aperture ring, the Jupiter-12 is also a very nice looking lens with the bulge at the back:

The best is to get these lenses together with a camera, this seems to be a better value and also give you better copies of the lenses.

Here some pictures taken with the 'comrades'

So comrades, post your pictures taken with Russian lenses (or any other weird and wonderful Leica L or M lenses but not the standard CV, Leica or Zeiss).
