    Ah, the Russian Helios, I have got one here, too (the Novoflex adapter war 4x as expensive as the lens). I really should go and shoot some stuff with it, the bokeh is really special.

    I still have a hard time using the lens, but so far, i'm really enjoying it.

    I take this with the XT2 and my dad's old Fujinon 50 f1.9. I love this lens! Since its christmas season, i did a "little" photoshop to get Aslan the cat to right mood :biggrin:

    I'm quite sensible on aperture using my native Fuji lenses, but not with the M42 50mm Takumar F1.4, the trouble is you just want to shoot wide open all the time, even this image, taking a picture of some rubbish bins for God's sake.
