Not likely, because, once you think you are done, you can always try other FSU LTM lenses, like I-61L/D.

Here's another one, shot last week when testing a Z6 from a fellow member. Two negs combined for one pano shot on 200 asa film, with Jupiter 3 from 1956:

That's stunning, Ron. I've never done something like that. I assume you just used a tripod and rotated slightly?

Incidentally, the last time I was in the Netherlands was when I was about 10. That is EXACTLY how I remember it! Beautiful place.

Very interesting indeed! I like to do software stitching of digital images, but to do the same with film shots... I don't see myself taking 100+ film exposures, scanning them and than stitch them But two or 3, I can still manage that

Thank you Tony. Actually I shot both pictures handheld, and honestly at that time I hadn't planned to make it a pano. But once I saw these pictures near each other on my computer I saw the pictures worked much better as a panorama. However since I did them handheld I lost some of the pictures when they were stiched together as you can see here:

Once digitized, there is actually no difference between combining digital images and digitized film.

Rarely see film panos but this is sweet scenery with good color balance. Picture seems perfect as it is or to me pic is nicely focused.

I miss using the J3. It is such a great lens.

Wow. Makes one want to get a whole kit just for the J3.

The Jupiter-3 is an amazing lens, with surprising qualities. Compared to the Zeiss Jena Sonnar 50/1,5 the J/3 closes up to 22, instead of early Sonnars (f/8) and later ones (f/11) and this is a great help when taking pictures in daylight, especially with modern, faster films. As seen in the posted pictures though, this lens gives its best in low light situations.

My J-3 is from 1960, with Kiev/Contax mount. Bought back in 1989 (in Venice, from a Russian tourist).

A very sharp lens, the one from 1950. Also the color rendering is beautiful. Can you show a picture of this early Jupiter lens?

I had several lens comparison projects for 50mm lenses in past years, and they included the J-3. In one of these projects I had three J-3 included. They did well.

I have a J-3 from 1951 and one from 1972. Both are in Contax mount, so I use an Amedeo adapter with them.

Tnx for showing. Nice early barrel and a very nice filter as well!

Just bought some color and Uv screw-in filters from a seller in Russia which fits nicely my J3's. Here are the filters shown with my oldest - 1956 and newest J3 - 1987:

Just did some quick 'test' shots so you get some idea of this black J3. I think yours - and the other old ones - are as sharp as this one, however the black J3 is multicoated and has a different i.e. amber color coating. So it might get a little better results in case of back lighting (not tested yet however)

Apart from the last one, all shots @ F 1.5 - lens is sharp in center and less at other places...at larger F-stops contrast is also little better











@ F22

not a bad result, but I can say with confidence my friend - on earlier versions of the lens sharpness win. Thanks for the test! good shots!
