Jupiter 9 meets The D800

I bought my first digital camera, a Nikon D50 (?) because older Nikon F mount lenses were compatible with it.

I have a boat load of old Canon FD mount lenses but they won't mount on Canon digital cameras. So I switched to Nikon. I still use my old Canon stuff when i shoot film

I've always enjoyed mixing and matching lenses with bodies. Many older lenses have interesting character flaws. They're not sterile and uninteresting like modern super-lenses.

Here are some shots I did today today with an old, Soviet Union Jupiter 9 85mm f2 T-mount lens adapted to my D800. The lens is a preset model and totally manual of course. The lens will not focus out to infinity due to focal length changes caused by the adapter.
