I have a yellow tint to my J-9. Yours looks as if it may too have a yellow bias, yes?

Very sharp. I have a silver m39 SLR too, mine is very soft wide open, sharpens up by 2.8, and is very sharp by f4. Might I know what aperture your shots were taken with (if you remember, I often forget with MF lenses)?

Any yellow?

Mine doesn't have a yellow tint - 1963 made by LZOS for Contax/Kiev. Slightly soft at f2, and a little glow, but at 2.8 it's sharp, I mostly shoot mine at f4-f8.

Very slight if at all, though I haven't had the chance to use it very much and haven't really paid attention to that. Its from 1965.

I've got 2 J-9, one RF m39 1955 and one in M42 - both have a yellow tint.

Did they ever use radioactive glass?

Yes, in the I-61L/D (Lanthanum) but not in these early Sonnars I think.

Despite having a blue coating, my 1961 RF model (PT7540) has a destinct yellowing, so seems most logical that it has the radioactive glass as there is no other answer I can think of. You might think the blue coating would counter the yellowing, but apparently not. I do not have a big problem with the yellowing, just trying to understand it. After correcting color in PP, it still has a warm look which I like very much. This picture has the color appearance of having been taken late in the day when actually the sun was high in the sky.

Great shots, perfectly focused. What aperture did you use in these?


PostPosted: Wed May 22, 2013 6:01 am    Post subject: Reply with quote

i shot these on a cloudy day so i kept aperture wide open most of the time

Really great pictures, the lens really shines on your photos.
I'm hunting for Jupiter 9 for some time now, but not only me as I see therefore prices are high.

Thanks for reminding how this lens could perform, I must spend some more time at work as I see Wink

Good performance from that J9, but I've also been noticing that your M5 seems to provide very nice images.

Considering your last photos, did you use any PP, or are they simple JPG's from body? Maybe some tweaking with settings in the camera?
Just asking as photos are wonderfully sharp and colourful.

the last one in the set was made using built in Pop art filter, others are regular shots no art filter
in pp i corrected black point in levels, and unsharp mask with setting i always use on all my photos so they are all equally sharpened

for that shooting i used art filter bracketing and had 12 versions of the same photo right in the camera, ended up with over 1000 shots that way

here you can see selection from the shooting, but first photos (31) are made with industar 61 l/d 52mm/2.8
