Helios-44, Classic 58/2 Lens
[hel44_020279]

Helios40_1

The Russian Helios-44 is a great normal lens for the Soviet Zenit line of SLR cameras. This particular lens has a 39 mm SLR mount, and was intended for use with the early Zenit cameras (Zenit, Zenit-S, Zenit-3, Zenit-3M, Kristall).

The aperture is a "preset" type - there are two rings. You set the aperture with one (it has stop-clicks), and after the focusing is completed, you close the aperture to the preset value with the second ring without taking your eye from the viewfinder. The lens has a built-in 3/8" tripod mount.

The lens is fast, with a well-controlled depth-of-field. It is ideal for portrait and available light photography.

This Helios-44 lens was made by the KMZ plant in the early 1960's. It is in good+ condition, the exterior shows some use, mechanics are smooth and the glass is clean. You can see some dust specks inside; they are minor and will not affect image quality.

The lens is shown on a Zenit SLR (camera not included, available separately).
