PT1005. Seems to be an earliest version of "Jupiter-12" lens. Under initial name "BK-35" ("Biogon Kransogorsk"). Very few lenses released by KMZ in 1947-1948. These first samples are totally assembled from Zeiss (Germany) optical glasses. Focal length - 3.5 cm, aperture range f2.8 - f22. Focusing range from 0.9 m to infinity. Number of elements/groups: 6/4.  Angular field - 63º. Kiev (Contax) mount. An earliest so far known lens has s/n #000012 1948 (A.Nikitin coll.).


Lens #001825 opposite from Ilya Stolyar (USA) collection. 


PT1005 - BK 2.8/35  #001825 (1948).




PT1010. 2nd generation of these beautiful lenses. Almost identical to its predecessor "BK-35", but under name "BK Zorki" already. Very limited batch of these lenses released by KMZ in 1949-1950. Partially or totally assembled from Zeiss (Germany) optical glasses.  Still have the tightening ring around the rear element. An earliest so far known lens has s/n #4901947 (Photo-Arsenal).


Lens #4901970 opposite from Ilya Stolyar (USA) collection. 


PT1010 - BK Zorki  #4901970.



PT1012. Lens indentical to PT1010, but under regular name "Jupiter-12" already. No otherwise different. Very uncommon to find, since very limited quantity released in 1950-1951 only. Still flat character "3" on body. An old style of character "4" on the metering scale yet (see picture below). An earliest so far known lens has s/n #5000412 (I.Stolyar coll.).


PT1012 - Jupiter-12  #5000412.



PT1015. Next generation under regular name "Jupiter-12". Signally changed body design (see comparison picture below). Less common to find, since released in 1951-1953 only. Flat (on early samples) or round character "3" on body. Old or new style of character "4" on the metering scale. An earliest so far known lens has s/n #5101531 (A.Terekhin coll.). Lens opposite from Ilya Stolyar (USA) coll.


PT1015 - Jupiter-12  #5102474.



PT1020. The regular and last version of Jupiter-12 lens, released by KMZ in 1952-1961.  Slightly changed body design, modified diaphragm setting ring (see comparison picture below). Quite common to find nowadays. Lens opposite from Ilya Stolyar (USA) coll.



PT1020 - Jupiter-12  #6007535.



PT1025. Lens identical to PT1020, but released by LZOS {"Lutkarinskij Zavod Opticheskogo Stekla"). White body. Name markings in Cyrillic characters. No otherwise different. Some lenses have "Made in USSR" engravings on body. Quite common to find nowadays.


. Less common to find lens, released by ARSENAL Zavod (Ukraine) since 1957. White body. Tightening ring around the rear element. 6-digits serial number. No otherwise different from PT1025. Lens opposite from Ilya Stolyar (USA) coll.


PT1030 - Jupiter-12  #591348.



PT1035. Lens by LZOS identical to PT1025, but with black body finish already. Name markings in Roman characters. Some lenses have an additional "MADE IN USSR" engravings on body (few different styles, see picture below). Very popular to find nowadays at the reasonable prices. Lens opposite from Ilya Stolyar (USA) coll.
