The M39-screw version of the Jupiter 12 is one of the few lenses in this fitting that can't be adapted to mirrorless cameras with sensors smaller than full frame - the rear element was designed to protrude close to the film, and fouls against the sensor surround on Micro Four Thirds and Sony_NEX cameras with APS-C sensors. It would also give problems with Corfield Periflex cameras, which used the standard M39 mount but had a focusing periscope between the lens and the film.
