Jupiter 9 as macro lens? !
Posted By: Igilligan, 10-24-2008, 07:58 PM

To say that I am pleasantly surprised by this lens is an understatement. I tried it the first day I had it with the Sony 3358 macro adaptor.

And today I put the Raynox 250 on it to see how it did... I like the look of these shots....
Tell me what you think?

More Jupiter-9 as macro...this time on bellows...

Well, I stuck the J-9 on the bellows this morning and the results are not too bad. Not quite as good as my Pentax-M 50/1.7, but real good, none-the-less and with the benefit of added working distance. Unfortunately I could not find any flies. I think they have all flown south for the winter.

Jupiter-9 85/2 on bellows ~1:1.5, f/16

A little more DOF would have been nice, but f/16 is the end of the range...


BTW...There is a lot more detail on the full-size image, but size reduction to forum standards softened the image...

Nice images. But the first image is simply sensational.
