I've been pretty pleased with the performance of the Jupiter 12 and 8, but they're not ltm so to use them it's a drop into old-tech Kiev... From what I hear about the J9, smirt, it's tricky to get the focus calibrated.

Ah.... Thanks for that Doug. I guess that there is less leeway with a longer lens? You may have saved me some hassle there.

Maybe I'll go for an Elmar for my 90mm.

Thanks again for the info.

Um...... Quite a few. Could not afford Leica glass some years ago. It all started started with an Industar 22. Optics are a Tessar clone and mechanics are an Elmar 3.5/50 clone. Have had several Industar 61L/D's.

Hi Jakesm. Welcome to LVL. How do/did you find the Industar 22? I'm considering buying one. ..... Or do I save for an Elmar??

Thanks

Smirt
