Tried

Minster on Sea, England. 2022

Sorry, I know another corny title. Shot at an aperture of f/2.8, I like this shot not only because of the detail in the old tyre and beach but I was lucky enough to capture the sea in shadow from a passing cloud.

Must stop looking around the internet at photographic equipment!

I found a rare Lomography Jupiter 3+ 50mm f/1.5 Art Lens which was a updated version of the 50mm f/1.5 Jupiter 3 lens which was a Zeiss Sonnar copy. I say rare, as it turns out KMZ Zenit and Lomography only produced 500 units in 2016 and mine is serial number 000495. Very well made and solid feeling lens, although somewhat lighter than the Summilux 50mm (my main bugbear with that Leica lens is being so heavy!) and it’s a joy to use. This lens is a M39 thread mount and comes M mount adapter in the box. Very smooth focusing, step less aperture but does come the typical Russian filter size of 40.5mm.

My example was in mint condition, for £340 ~ $383, complete as the image above.

This shot was taken on Fomapan 100 Classic film wide open at f/1.5 on my Leica MP with a KMZ yellow filter.
