Help picking up a Helios 44M lens for Sony!

I have an oportunity to buy one in my country (always wanted) and I have to choose between 2 versions

  1. HELIOS -44M - 58 mm / f 2
  2. HELIOS -44M - 6 - 58 mm / f 2

Gonna be using them on a sony crop camera. Both are the same amount of money so nothing to worry about. Although I read a lot about the Helios lenses, still not sure what are the differences and which one I should go for, so any help is appreciated!
Things I care : Swirly bokeh, distinctive look! I've read a ton about creating the swirly bokeh, and I know both of those are not 44-2, but they are better build and tend to produce good quality images. I don't care that much about sharpness, the thing I care is the bokeh and the distinctive look. CA and Flare resistance is something I do care about, but not big priority!
