yeah, that's my favourite lens for that camera. 50mm, f2 Jupiter 8. Finest Russian optics, almost as good as the equivilant Leica lens. At that kind of range, it has a focal length of about 5cm, which pleases me greatly. I have an Industar 61 LD for that camera as well, but I rarely use it, despite it's utter fabulousness. (the Jupiter just rocks a bit more..)

It's a FED4L, or maybe a FED5B. Glorious cameras - basically copies of the Leica M series, reverse engineered by genius russian optical engineers for the KGB and the Russian Army. you can pick 'em up on eBay for next to nothing, which is why I have three. Lens as specced above.

These were shot on Jessops "DiamondColour" crappy free 200 speed film, then processed as black and white by myself. One of the first films I'd developed for a good ten years. The second shot might be shot on Ilford FX200, extended red response, psuedo-IR film, but I screwed up the development a bit on that. I also screwed up most of the photos, due to a film-not-fully-rewound-back-off cockup. Doh!
