    I just hope they focus good. I have a 20 dollar Jupiter here and it is funky for sure
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    Why you lil' Pinko, Helen!!

    Seriously, glad you are having so much fun and would love to see the results ... are you going to have the negatives scanned so you can upload 'em?
    Regards,
    Joan

    Way to go Helen! Your muse is in control (I wonder if her name is Natasha?). Congratulations and please post some samples.

    So my Zorki did not pan through....& the two additional Jupiter lenses were NOT screwmount
    so would not work w/the rd1s (even though they were in good condition / there bokeh can be quite Trippy Surreal)
    BUT
    I bought instead a Bessa 2a
    & a 1962/ Nikkor 50mm 1.4 with a beautiful cognac colored leather case -LOVELY REALLY

    Me & Life are sooooo Unpredicatable
    Its exhausting to hang out with me

    Do hope I will fall in love with this lens otherwise perhaps a Canon /or a Canon Seranar

    PS: the Bessa was a Present for the Hubby
    got him into the rangefinder State of Mind
