KOMZ USSR Soviet M39 135mm f4 Jupiter 11 Silver Camera Lens
This is a very nice KOMZ USSR Soviet M39 135mm f4 Jupiter 11 Silver Camera Lens in its original black plastic case. Based on the Carl Zeiss Sonnar 4/135 lens, it has a 12 blades diaphragm. Many of these lenses were used as Military Airforce Movie Lenses.
I haven’t tried it but, according to the forums, this lens is compatible, (with an appropriate adapter), with many modern SLR cameras including; Canon EOS, Nikon, Pentax, Sony and more.
In excellent condition, with clean optics and no sign of any fungus. There are a few superficial surface scuffs on the body but these are commensurate with age and use. This lens dates to approx. the 1970s and was the Soviet equivalent of the Leica M39.
