Item Description
I have a Jupiter-9 for sale. It is the rarer of the two main versions, M42 mount with a chrome sliver body. Most chrome copies you come across are in the Leica M39 mount and won't focus to infinity adapted on your camera. This one does, perfectly! It has a great metal and not plasticky body. The focusing is quite smooth for this lens (usually it gets very stiff -- this is *slightly* stiff but once you warm it up by using it, it's just like a Takumar). The aperture blades have a tiny bit of oil on them, and some marks from a previous cleaning -- but, they are very responsive and this is a preset manual aperture anyway, so they won't be stopping down/up quickly. There are minor scuffs, brassing, and other wear on the body, but overall it's in quite good condition. There is also some small coating irregularities on the front, but this is done in the factory and not from abuse. I see some small dust specs, but no real scratches of any kind on the glass.

Considering the age and how far this lens has come from its origin, I would easily rate it at a 7/10. There are minor flaws, but I don't think you'll be able to find a copy of this lens in better condition. It comes with the original metal chrome felt-lined front cap, which is extremely hard to get, and a generic rear cap. Here are pictures:
