    Really interested to hear your take and see your pics on this Ray. I've always been impressed by write-ups about the Jupiter-8... could be next on my sights (oh nooo, not another 50mm!!) :eek:

    Ok my 1st pics with this lens




    I must say my C3 feels really good in the hands with this lens on it, a little tricky to get the print to the top of the body though, saying that I never look at that anyway, I just turn away until the shot looks good (to me) on the screen!

    I think I need to use this lens a lot more, once I understand it better, I'll pass further comment..

    Nice low contrast and shadow detail retention I can see B&W images shot with this lens with the contrast bumped up producing really good results.

    I'm sure I took about 3 from that position :) cracking little lens, very similar to CCTV lens but better.
