Picked up a Zorki 4k with a Jupiter 8 50mm f2 mint condition, £10 at our local flea market. Here first shot on a Fuji xe1.

Interesting bokeh and I like the image.  It works well for me.

I absolutely love this Weary......you have just motivated me to dig my ....Jupiter 8 out of its drawer.....then to find suitable subjects to shoot with it ..... to produce similar ethereal results.

Did the focal length vary slightly according to the mount, or was there a wide variance and they measured them individually? Mine is a Kiev/Contax mount (on a Kiev 4) and is 53mm FL.

A beautifully simple image - I reckon the lens is a very good ten quid's worth.

BP is right lots of variations of the same lens, I have four Jupiter 8s and they are all different, this one is a m39 mount but i've also got Contax/Kiev mount too.
