Jupiter-3 madness

Last month I made a deal with Jamie from RFF and traded a Jupiter-9 8.5cm 1:2 lens in Kiev/Contax mount for a Jupiter-3 5cm 1:1.5 in Leica screw mount (M39) for my Bessa. The lens I always wanted. Ever since I knew how good the Jupiter-8 is. And Jupiter-3 is said to be even better!

Here is one picture taken in my room. It was quite dark in there... but I had enough time to focus precisely and this is the result:

Bessa R2 + Jupiter-3 50mm f/1.5 @ f/1.5 on Fomapan 100

I just love the soft creamy 'Sonnar' bokeh... As we went out, I wanted to try it also outside wide open... and I think the following is still a nice photo, albeit a bit misfocussed... and the bokeh is sooo smoooth...

The next picture I took with the lens a bit stopped down to increase depth of field. By the way - that's Brian, my dog (on the left), and Lubka, my beautiful girlfriend (on the right) ;o)
