Re: Jupiter(s) on my Nex 5!

I have the first two and I love them, but how's the industar 69 - I read somewhere that the M39 adapter doesn't work well with them, won't focus to infinity - that is for the chaika half-frame camera and the distance to the sensor wasn't the standard M39.
Thanks in advance!

I just bought some very old Russian lenses, JUPITER-8 2/50, Collapsible Lens INDUSTAR-50 and INDUSTAR-69 2.8/28.

They are all M39 mount, so i used my Leica M39-> Nex adaptor.

The INDUSTAR-69 2.8/28 needed some modification for focusing right on my Nex.

Collapsible Lens INDUSTAR-50mm f/3.5

JUPITER-8 f2/50mm

INDUSTAR-69 f/2.8/28mm
