This early Jupiter-9 is m39 ZTM screw mount lens, adapters will be required to use this lens on modern cameras.
The m39 ZTM lenses are lenses for early Zenit SLR cameras – flange distance is slightly different from the later adopted common m42 standard.
As a result this lens will not quite reach infinity focus(noticable on open apertures), but when stopped down the increase depth of field covers the infinity focus.
We include m39 to m42 step up ring to enable usage of the lens with modern m42 adapters:
NEX adapter – for Sony NEX E mount cameras
Fuji X adapter – for FujiFilm X-mount cameras
Micro 4/3 adapter – for Panasonic G, Olympus Pen etc
EOS M adapter – for Canon mirrorless cameras
Nikon simple adapter & infinity adapter – on Nikon (D)SLR
