Just picked this up today. It's P6 mount and I'm considering buying a P6-Nikon F adapter and shooting with it on both the Sony and Fuji cameras.
It's very heavy but I don't think it would create a camera mount problem if I hold it correctly.
Any experience with this lens?

Киев + Юпитер-8М

I used Kиев as a donor for the RF-NEX adapter.

The Icarex TM (TM= thread mount as opposed to the BM version) came with the concave front element Ultron labelled Carl Zeiss. ZIV was on its last legs, so the production run was not that long. Mine is number 742734x.

Nice. Can you share which particular NEX adapter you used? I had a problem with using a FOTGA M39-NEX for this conversion Sad

I used the cheapest Chinese adapter without a trade mark (only the inscription L39-NEX).

Yes, a pleasant lens to use, but prone to flare.

Have found the Voigtlaender Nokton 40mm/F1.4 for a discount price and couldn't resist:



Therefore I skipped the idea to wait for the 40mm/F1.2. I think F1.4 is good enough and more practical for general usage.

Those sound like heavy but fascinating lenses.

This is the last lens I bought! Smile
I could get it for quite cheap cause it's in Kiev 80/88 mount, and because it's called Calejnar-3B (Calejnar instead of Kaleinar).
Maybe it's a domestic version, but the engraving is not in cyrillic).
I often found people reporting that the lenses for the internal Soviet block market were of lesser quality than the ones for export.
Sounds a bit silly, those lenses were quite expensive at the time, and meant for professional use, I don't see why QC should have been inferior.

I still have to try this optic, so I have no clues about its performance on FF digital. Fortunately I already have a couple of P6 to PK adapters, plus a ring that converts the Kiev/first gen. Hasselblad mount to Pentacon Six.
Back in the old times the Kaleinar 2.8/150mm was highly praised by medium format shooters, while most of the Soviet optics were usually snobbed by advanced amateurs.
It was considered a very good portrait lens.
I hope it confirms that judgement. A portrait lens with a focal of 150mm could be of some use...

cheers

Nice find. I've been looking for a 50 1.4 to add to my collection. I've heard (on the classic lens podcast ) that I need to get an LTM version. Wink

Yes, I heard the praise for the LTM lens.
I think that the boys like it for its size as well as its performance, but if it is like the 50mm f1.8 LTM then it won't focus closer than about one metre.
The FL does focus to around 0.6m.
Just something to keep in mind if you are choosing between the two
