    Description
    I have very good condition Helios 44-3 Russian made 58mm f2 lens. This lens is a copy of the Zeiss 58mm Biotar. The 44-3 is the 1st version of this lens with multi-coatings ( although there is a 44-2 MC which is rare). This is a serial# starting with 90 which indicates 1990 made. It's a M42 mount and focuses from relatively close to infinity ( a little past). It is renowned for it's swirly bokeh under certain conditions. It has 8 aperture blades which show surface wear but open and close freely and easily. The focus throw is smooth and buttery. Not stiff at all. It does not rub against the adapter, which is somewhat common with this particular version. If you ever wanted this lens, but didn't want to risk a lens from the former USSR, here's the chance. I'll include photos of and with this lens. 1st, 2nd and third photos are f2,2.8,4 all settings being equal. The others f2. This lens is quite sharp, even wide open, but does soften on the edges, getting better until 5.6 where it has best across the frame resolution. Comes with m42 to fujix adapter.
