Re: Helios 44-( ) 58mm f2.0 buying advice??

Why the Helios in particular?

The one I used had very swirly, "hangover-like" bokeh and was otherwise o.k. but nothing special.

IMHO there are many 50mm lenses out there which can be had cheaply and are far better.

Case in point, a good sample of the Soviet Jupiter 50mm for rangefinder cameras is a far better lens, as well as being much smaller and lighter...
