Re: Helios 44 58/2 M39 mount ?

The Industar-61 52/2.8 was the ffirst manual lens i ever used and i loved the results, but i fear it's one of those frankenstein cameras made out of spare lens parts, because the part that screws to the adapter isn't centered properly and gets stuck often while focusing, which can accidentally unscrew the lens from the camera! It's this type:

A good copy, or mine if i can fix it, could be a really great lens i think, very light also:

The aluminium version is rumoured to be better, and not cobbled together. Also, never forget to compare your lens quality against the kit 18-55 if you have it; it's not the smallest but is still a very nice and light lens!
