Hi Don,

I would never do that. ;-

I acquired this lens in a Leica swap many years ago, and found that the rangefinder cam does not work with Leica RFs.  Probably Zenit or something else from the USSR.  But, with Leica adapters, it works fine with my mirrowless Fujis.  Very compact.  Only problem is that the aperture ring is very free.  A little black tape will take care of that.  And, it will poke through the chain link backstops at ball parks!

I was checking out an old Russian Jupiter 8 lens, thinking of using it
at ball games, when this rural U. S. Mail carrier happened to stop
across the street.   This road, alongside my house, serves the Eastern
part of Moore County, best known for Lynchburg and the Jack Daniels
Distillery.  I have noted that the carrier who delivers mail on this
route uses an assortment of vehicles, including the regular mail
trucks.  Today, it was a stylish Jeep, driven from the right side, of
course.

This tiny lens is no Summicron or Silvernose Olympus, but it is
distortion-free and very light.
