I like the idea that Zuiko means 'Light of the Gods'. OTH hand I use some v. prosaic Russian lenses called Industars

Mind you they are Tessars in disguise, and my Jupiter 9 85/2, a deicious Sonnar, avoided me to fork for the Oly 75mm.

Actually, the Industars copied (more like adapted for less precise construction) the Leitz Elmar.

My Jupiter 9 flares or washes out pretty badly at full aperture - probably light reflections in the body or sensor interface, as it's far worse than with film.

Well a hood is compulsory, and also a coated version, but wt. me it does v. well.
