The Russian Jupiter-8 is a high quality normal lens for the Leica Threadmount rangefinder cameras. It was sold as a standard lens on many cameras - Zorki-3, 3M, 4, 4K, Leningrad, Drug and some others. This lens is a copy of a famous Zeiss Sonnar 50/2.
It was produced in both LTM and Contax/Kiev mount and proved to be one of the most successful Soviet lenses. Of course, we have to credit Carl Zeiss for this.
