    Jupiter 50mm f1.5 wide open?

    After spending some time with my Pentax 50mm f1.7, even though I really like it I've found it a bit soft while wide open. I've been toying with the idea of replacing it with a Jupiter 50mm f1.5. Does anyone have a couple of pictures with the aperture wide open?

    The J3 will be softer wide open than the Pentax.

    I have Jupiter-8, 50mm f2, and it is soft wide open. Problem with Ukrain lenses is that there is lot of sample variations. However, this weekend I bought Jupiter-9 (85mm f2) lens and it seems quite usable wide open. I dont know about Jupiter 3, but if You can buy it cheap, meabby it is worth trying it.
