The Jupiter-11 135 mm f/ 4 (Russian: "Юпитер") is a medium prime tele lens with a single-layer coating for film SLR cameras with the m39 screw mount.
The export variant of the lens was named the Jupiter-11,135/4
Real focal length: 133 mm
The lens is a Soviet replica of the German Carl Zeiss Jena Sonnar T 135 mm f/ 4
The version with the changeable Jupiter-11A mount was also produced.
The Jupiter-11,135 mm f/ 4 is characterized with a very compact size, with a nice Sonnar blur of confusion zones (mainly due to the 11-blade iris aperture), rather good resolution and contrast.
It was also produced for rangefinder cameras. This variant of the lens will be discussed in a separate review.
The Jupiter-11 is fit for portrait and fragment photography, for artistic photography of various genres.
It looks very well on mirrorless cameras.
