[SOLD] Jupiter-9 85mm f2.0

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Jupiter-9 85mm f2.0

Asking Price
120

Item Description
for sale is the russian Jupiter-9 85mm f2.0 lens

lens comes with generic rear cap and a soviet front plastic cap.

the lens is an M42 mount, however it has been modified with an m42 adapter and a bit of drilling to be used as a K mount (see images)

can still be used on as an M42 lens but you would have to get the adapter off (good luck, cuz i couldnt)

some oil on the aperture blades, but from what i read this is normal.

some dust inside the lens, glass is otherwise in good condition with no scratches.

asking 120, shipped and paypal fees included. (overseas clients may get dinged more, please ask prior)











this is the image of the hole that i drilled in the base of the lens, so that it will lock with your pentax camera, works just like a normal K-Mount

Oil on the blades is normal for this lens. It's a superb performer, maybe the most affordable 85mm you can get.

Handy that it's already k-mount (for some people), too.

I wish it was a standard M42. I'd be all over it, without the mod.

On the other hand, it's now a k-mount 85/2 at a killer price. I'm sure someone will prefer it that way.

as far as i know Russians never got ahold of the Japanese formula for lens coating... , just the German design.


are you confusing this with the M39 Silver version? or the Helios 40-2 vs 40?

I was reading up in the lens review section, and people were mentioning newer and older versions.
It seems the older are better, but the newer come with a "multi coated" ... coating

In the first pic you can see "MC" written right before "JUPITER" if that's a hint?

There is some discussion regarding "older" vs. "newer" and most of it regards the LSM variants. As far as I know for M42, the new MC variants are as good as any of the older models. One must remember that lenses of this name were made using a number of different bodies in both black and "silver" in a multitude of different mounts by several different manufacturing entities. Gooshin's lens is of fairly recent production and was made by LZOS in Russia.

You can tell the year of manufacture from the serial number. The manual that ships with the lens also has the date of inspection. Mine looks just like Gooshin's and was made in 2007.
