S-M-C Takumar 105 f/2.8, SMC-M 100 f/2.8.

I think there's a Tak, K, F or FA 135 f/1.8 IIRC, but I think it's super expensive.

I recommend highly on few lens that are M42 based to go with Jupiter9

1. Carl Zeiss Jena 135mm f/3.5 -- this is quite an outstanding lens when I tried it and sold it later to my good friend Rose in photo.net forum

2. Super Takumar 105mm f/2.8 -- this is a beautiful lens if you find it in good condition. In the short time that I own it, I find this lens outstanding but I ran into few caveats in difficult metering and I also find lens barrel a bit too small for me to get used to. The lens is petite in size which is a plus.

3. I won't recommend the Carl Zeiss Jena Sonnar 180mm f/2.8 (m42) as it is not for everyone as the lens is heavy at 2.42lb, 119mm lens cap. But I love the lens for what it is -- my Zebra football lens from Germany.

Thanks,
Hin

please, a moment:
i can use jupiter-9 85mm not only in "M mode + green button" (stop down) but also in AV without limits (not only in wide open).
jupiter-9 85mm is a m42.

so i ask you, please when you give me info about a lens, tell me also if then i can use this len in AV or not.
thanks

Yes, you can And you have a good choice - Jupiter 37A 135mm /3.5, but Sonnar 135 /3.5 looks better with MC coating

Jupiter is more cheap anyway.

Fast aperture, over 100mm, and good bokeh... I would put a vote on the SMC 135mm 2.5. It is fully manual K-mount so I have no idea what functions are avalable on a digital body.

I can post example pictures if you are interested in the bokeh of the lens.

A Nice Screwmount...

These are a bit hard to find, but I suggest the SMC Takumar 135mm 2.5. Version number 43812 has better optics and boy, talk about wonderful bokeh. It's a M42 screwmount and fully manual, but when you find them they are probably under 180 dollars.
