Re: Adapting a Helios 44M F/2 58mm to M4/3??

Hi! Helios-44M was made with three different mounts - M42 (standard for Russian cameras, Takumar Pentax and Practika), M39 (same as L39 but with longer flange focal distance - 45.2mm) and Pentax-K.

About 90% of the lenses have M42 screw mount. So you should check the lens itself first before ordering the adapter.
More information you can find here:

Actually I tried two versions of such lenses: Helios 44M-6 and Helios 44-3. Both are excellent. You can find samples here:
