Helios 44-2 photos
15

I got this lens two days ago. Here are some photos taken with Helios 44-2 58mm f2 yesterday. I already have Helios 44m-4 58mm f2 but this one seems to make more swirl. The only thing about it is that it's total flare disaster which can be bad and good thing depending on the shooting scenario. 44m-4 is less prone to flare. Also, it's not as wide as 44m-4 when mounted on the camera and is not touching camera mount firmly, instead it is touching only m-42 to K-mount adapter and the adapter itself will have some play always. So when focusing the whole lens will move left and right. Not a big problem but definitely not that nice tactile experience. But at least it's not wearing out lens mount contacts.
