This is a 135mm F4.0 telephoto lens with apertures to 22. It focuses from 2.5 meters. The way to distinguish this rangefinder lens is thst it is straight and the SLR lens is shaped more like a hand grenade. There is a Jupiter 11-1 that was produced in black in contax mount so probably it also exists in screw mount.
