Re: Helios 44 58/2 M39 mount ?

If compact is a requirement, get an Industar 69. It is about a third the size of a Jupiter 88 or the Helios 44. You do need to mod it a bit since the registration distance is about 2mm shorter than the NEX. You can either lathe down the M39 adapter or modify the lens so you can focus it to reach infinity. Many people file down the lens since it's easier. I haven't done that to mine yet so. Even so, it outshines my Jupiter 8.

I'd post a link here, but dpreview censors out other photography sites. Weak. Google "industar 69" and you'll find info about it.
