    Im looking for a general walk around lens for my nex 7 and this lens seems really apealing.
    Any thoughts on the performance?

    I used the Jupiter 8 with my NEX 5n for a bit. Being a RF lens it's very compact but the MFD is pretty long. If you want a compact walk about lens I would be inclined to look at an Olympus Pen-F 38/1.8 instead.

    I got mine attached to a Bessa R but personally I prefer it on an A5100 at 75. Black KMZ copy, 1976 vintage. It has sold me on clickless aperture, also having the aperture ring at the front. Wide open in low light it's kinda meh - at f2 a sparkly ornament on the mantelpiece was entirely devoid of said sparkle, but it does have a something that keeps me using it:

    I like my Jupiter 8 too. Its a sharp, compact and crazy-inexpensive little lens. Works well on my film cameras too.

    Just tried this out on my new A6000. I had used it previously on m4/3 but this seems much sharper, even allowing for the higher resolution.

    I got so mesmerized by the idyllic scene there that I almost didn't catch the anomaly. Nicely shot, Mark. :)
