Jupiter 11

Jupiter 11
This is an incredible lens, a product of Soviet Russia and dating back to 1971, the Cold War was still being waged and Russian products were rare in the West. Lenses like this were over engineered, built like tanks. But the glass was perfection.

Russian optics have always been brilliant.

I also have the polished aluminium Jupiter 11 in M39 mount, but it's just about unmarked so I don't use it much - I don't want to mark it. But this version is built like a tank, designed to be used rather than admired. I don't think there's anything to choose between them optically, so this is now my 'go to 135 lens'. Which considering I have got 14 135mm lenses is high praise for this old Russian heavyweight.
