Jupiter-9 (Zorki)

  

PT7005. Seems to be an earliest version of "Jupiter-9" lens. Under initial name "ZK-85" ("Sonnar Kransogorsk"). Very few lenses released by KMZ in 1948-1949. These first samples are totally assembled from Zeiss (Germany) optical glasses. Focal length - 8.5 cm, aperture range f2 - f22. Focusing range from 1.8 m to infinity. Number of elements/groups: 7/3.  Angular field - 28º. Zorki (M39) mount. An earliest so far known lens has s/n #000038 1948 (U.Witte coll.).

PT7005 - ZK 2.0/85mm lens.

 

  

PT7010. Almost identical to its predecessor "ZK-85" (PT7005), but under name "ZK Zorki" already. Very limited batch of these lenses released by KMZ in 1949-1950. Partially or totally assembled from Zeiss (Germany) optical glasses. Date prefix in the serial number already. Flat character "3" on body. Old style of character "4" engravings yet (see picture below). Still ultra rare to find nowadays. An earliest so far known lens has s/n #5000044 (SovietCams).

PT7015. New generation of lens, under regular name "Jupiter-9". Almost identical to PT7010, but with wider meter scale disk already. New focusing range from 1.15m to infinity. Flat character "3" on body. Old style of character "4" engravings yet as on PT7005 or PT7010 lenses. Still ultra rare to find nowadays. Very limited quantity released by KMZ in 1950-1951.

Released by KMZ in 1951-1960 (all KMZ versions). An earliest so far known lens has s/n #5101289 (A.Nikitin coll.).

PT7030. One more version of the particular lens. Almost identical to PT7025, but with narrow aperture settings disk and wider meter scale disk. Released by KMZ in 1956 only (?). Signally changed body in comparison with earliest samples (see comparison picture below).

PT7035. Seems to be the latest version of Jupiter-9, released by KMZ. A limited batch released in 1960 only. Almost identical to PT7027 (see comparison picture below), but with new markings on the lens faceplate: "1:2  F=8.5 cm" replaced by "2/85". The latest so far known lens has s/n #6022318 (eBay 2012).


 




 

PT7035 - Jupiter-9  #6019136.
