Jupiter-3 Lens Shimming Instructions

This tutorial shows how to adjust the optical block shims in the 50mm Jupiter-3 lens.

This tutorial was created by Brian Sweeny, a respected authority on repairing and adjusting the Jupiter-3 and other Sonnar-type lenses. He has generously shared it with us, along with several other lens servicing tutorials that he has written.

For the first five years that we operated this site, we were able to offer all of these manuals as free downloads. The site has gotten so large and popular that we are exceeding the limits of bandwidth and storage imposed by our web host. Please don't share these files; if we do not bring in enough revenue to pay to keep the site online, we will be forced to shut the site down. We've set the price low eough that it won't burden those who want to learn to repair cameras, while hopefully bringing in enough each month to keep the site open. We are not trying to make a profit from this.
