Helios-103, 53/1.8

SKU: h103crf84595 Category:


The Soviet 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.

      Yuri found me one of these for my later Kiev 4 and it’s really a treat. The aperture click stops feel tactile and overall it’s a great lens to shoot on, one of the USSR’s best lenses.

      This is a hell of a nice lens! It looks gorgeous on my new Kiev and it’s of amazing quality! I love it! Love the black part, the very shiny chrome, the very very very near to mint glass! Beautiful! Superb results! If you have a Kiev but a scrap lens, get one of these NOW!
