    Jupiter-3 5cm/1.5 Russian Sonnar in NEX E mount

    For sale is a Jupiter-3 5cm/1.5 Russian Sonnar in NEX E mount.

    The lens assembly is fitted to a Hawk factory helical with NEX E bayonet, as found on ebay for $140. The lens is infinity adjusted. The Hawk helical has very smooth operation, but there is a inner sleeve that protects the helical from dust that binds sometimes. Maybe it will work out with use, as this is brand new. The focus ring turns in the same direction as a Nikon, Pentax, and the opposite from Leica, Canon, etc. The focus ring is marked in millimeters of travel, not feet or meters. The Hawk helical has M42 threads, so it could do double duty with another lens that has M42 threads.

    The Jupiter lens unit has a very smooth and free turning aperture ring, with no stop clicks. The glass is clean and coated, with no visible cleaning marks.

    The jupiter filter threads were damaged, so a Tiffen UV filter is tightly fitted to give filter threads. I would suggest not removing it, however the filter glass can be removed from the outside if desired.

    Also, the Hawk adapter has 7mm of focus travel, which is more than the Jupiter normally needs, and gives a minimum focus distance of about 2 feet.

    Reason for selling, is that I have purchased several of these Sonnar type lenses, and need to recover some dollars. This is a good less expensive way to have some fun and experiment with the historic Sonnar design.

    Priced at $185 Paypaled and shipped in the US.
