Helios-103, 53/1.8
[h103crf84595]

helios103_1

The Russian Helios-103 is a high quality normal lens for the Contax/Kiev type rangefinder cameras. It was sold as a standard lens on the last Kiev models - Kiev-4m and Kiev-4am. The lens is faster than a usual Jupiter-8M, modern-looking and has the best aperture stop-clicks I've ever tried. It is also very sharp and contarsty.

  • Focal length

53 mm

  • Aperture

1:1.8 (settings from 1.8 to 22)

  • Focusing

0.9 m - Infinity

  • Filter size

M40.5x0.5 mm

  • Mount

Contax (Kiev) Internal Bayonet

  • Coated glass. Black and chrome finish.

This Helios-103 was made in 1984. It is in EXC condition. The lens is shown mounted on a Contax III (not included).

The Helios-103 was supplied as a standard equipment on the Kiev-4m and Kiev-4am cameras.

Please note: the Helios-103 was apparently made to different tolerances and though it fits nicely on all newer Kievs (from the 60's and up) I had difficulties mounting it on the early Kievs and prewar Contax cameras. I was always able to mount it, but it required some wiggling and, sometimes, more force than one would anticipate.

I had no problem mounting this Helios-103 on a prewar Contax III, but I had to mention this potential problem.
