A good I-61 is better stop-for-stop than a good J-8, but the I-61 seems to be a bit more of a lottery. It also has far better ergonomics than the typical J-8.

There are three versions of the J-8 , the most common (modern, black) having very "cheap and nasty" build with the whole lens rotating with focus, including the aperture ring. The less common earlier versions are more like the I-61 with non-rotating front. They are far less common and tend to cost more.

Wow ! Too bad because I prefer the black version with my black NEX
I'll try to find a older one then, thanks for the info.

About the Helios 44 58/2 M39, if I use it with a M39 adapter, will I have a lot of problems ?
