Buying Pearls for Christmas

GXR A12-M, f2.0, 1/125, ISO 295, RAW, 75mm (Jupiter-8 f2.0 50mm L)

Another quick day trip to Frankfurt but the weather was still grey and rainy like last time so not great for photography. This is actually the first picture I took after arriving at the train station from the airport.
The Jupiter-8 is a very nice lens and has a nice bokeh and colours. This is not bad for a lens that costs around £15-20 and you get an old Russian rangefinder camera thrown in for free.


  1. Exclellent find... nice shot too. At first I thought it was your Nokton.

    Interestingly... back in the 80s, I had a synthersizer called a Jupiter 8 made by Roland. A real classic synth, well loved and worth loads now. Totally irrelevant, I know.

    Happy Christmas.

  2. Thanks for your comment Bill!

    The Jupiter has a similar rendering to the Nokton in some cases and the colours are also a bit on the cool side.

    Happy Christmas to you, too!
