The Helios 44-2 is a beautiful lens, great for portraits and for video.

its' focal length (58mm) is ideal for portraits as it is equivalent to about 93mm in 35mm film.

If you want a cheap, faster lens, get the sharp Canon FD 50mm/f1.4 for about 100$.
it would give you an almost classic 80mm 35mm equivalent focal length.

Hello Izhar,

I've seen your posts and samples with this lens and it looks great. Thanks for sharing.

About the Canon FD, It looks very similar to the minolta 1.4 I already have, that's why I'm looking for a M39 lens : the adapter is small. A canon FD to NEX (like the minolta md) adapter is as deep as a pancake lens.
