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.
I saw this woman, with a sultry walk across the street and then stopped just over from me. Whether she’d seen me taking street images and decided she wanted to be photographed I’m not sure. Either way I’m pleased with the picture.
More expired Fujicolor 200 film, this time Faversham market, England.
I was looking for colours this particular day. I took the shot because of the Baby Walker which I’d not seen on of these wooden and metal walkers for years, think they are all plastic these days and this example was in very good condition for it’s age. Just didn’t notice the statue in the background when I shot this composition.
Some of the other wares laid out across the medieval street stones.
Final frame in Faversham that morning before heading off to Whitstable harbour previous post ‘Harbour‘
