I have been picking up vintage lenses to use on my Fuji over the last few months - my latest is a Jupiter 8 made 1970 to 1992 (difficult to pin it down further) that while not particularly sharp wide open does exhibit a fantastic bonkers-bokeh that I think will prove entertaining to shoot with.

 

First outing was at teatime when I took Jasper up on the local hills...

Funky Russian lens!  Love the one of Jasper, but all are excellent images.

 

Thanks for sharing.

 

I am amazed that lens performs so well.  Kudos to you for experimenting.

Did you mount the lens on a Nikon?

Looks like you're having fun, Robin.

 

Great series, especially Jasper.  The bokeh in the shot of Jasper made me wonder if he's being transported to another dimension!  :o

I was recently thinking about that thread you started about the Pentacon 50mm lens, what adapter is needed for use with a Nikon? I've been running searches and have found nothing. Thanks!


Nikon D-3300 18-55 VRII, 1971 Nikkor 135mm Q-Auto, Tamron 70-300 AF. Not much! But I'm working on mastering what I do have.

Thanks guys - this is going to be a regular companion in my camera bag just for its fun OOF rendering.

 

 

Keith I'm guessing your was a aluminium (silver) version? If I got the chance I'd swap mine as the older ones are meant to be a little sharper.

You can get basic adapters on Amazon and eBay that allow M42 lenses to be used on Nikon F mounts but you can't focus to infinity - mirrorless systems don't have this issue hence me experimenting with so many lenses. I have seen a few adapters with an element in them that shifts the focus so it will reach infinity but they may not keep the original quality of the lens you are trying.

I found an ebay store that corrects the issue with the focus to infinity problem on Nikons. See their vid here; 

 

There store is here http://stores.ebay.c...d=p4634.c0.m322

 

The package includes the fix for nikon, the adapter and the caps.

 

I got on of the helos, it will be here first half in July. I will let you know.

 

This is the one I got. http://www.ebay.com/...872.m2749.l2649

Yes BP, the 4 th version PT 3030, or first post war without any Zeiss components.

lots of good info on Russian lenses here.

http://sovietcams.co....php?-483601546.

 

there are a couple of guys in Ukraine that are doing conversions to F mount with infinity focus, and one is bundling contax mount lenses & M39 lenses with adapters for 4/3,  sony or Fuji X adapters.

Thats the sort of thing though I haven't tried any of the adapters with an element in as I don't need them for the Fuji.

I'm using them all on a Fuji X-T1 so no need for infinity adjustments or custom adjustments - all I need is the appropriate adapter ring which is an empty tube with the corresponding mounts and I'm good to go. I have two adapters for screw fit lenses (a M42 and a M39) that opens up a world of possibilities for vintage lenses plus one for Nikon F, Pentax K, Contax/Yashica and Olympus OM.
