Are there any problems with the Helios-44m 58mm f/2 m42 on a 5d2 body does anyone know?

Nope. Lots of users on this forum use them on 5D's. I use one on my 6D and have never had an issue.

It's definitely an interesting lens, have fun with it! In the future if you get a free vintage lens, don't be afraid to try it out. Even if a lens hits your mirror it's very, very unlikely that it will do any damage.

I use manual lenses for >95% of my photos.

Most loved lens is the Meyer Goerlitz Trioplan 100mm f/2.8, this lens gives a nearly unique bokeh rendering (much different to all Canon EOS lenses).

As the complete contrast I would reccomend a Sony 135 STF lens - but this need complex mount conversion. And the lens is expensive. I build lenses with an apodization element on my own, to get this smooth bokeh - for example with a Helios 44 and my filter (see homepage). By the way I love these Helios 44 lenses, because of their low price and simple mechanics - good for my experiments.

I like and use the Minolta Rokkor 58mm f/1.2 - very fast lens with good image quality. Some compare it to the Canon EF 50/f/1.2 and f/1.0 quality.

Furthermore I like and use other converted / adapted Minolta Rokkor lenses like 28mm/2.0. And Canon FD lenses, there I have converted some big glass :-) The white Canon FD L super tele lenses like FD 300/2.8L and 400/2.8L give good image quality to relative low prices for that focal length speed combination.
I own Zeiss Contax, Nikon, Schneider Kreuznach, Pentax,.. lenses, but I do not use they that often.

At the moment I try to adapt a Tyler Hobson lens as a 150/2.8 macro lens :-)

** any contact from the Meyer Goerlitz Trioplan 100mm and a 5d classic?
thanks, mike

No mirror contact. It´s only few lenses that give issues with EOS 5D mirror (exact for M42 mount, other mounts are sometimes problematic - C/Y).

Mine is with M42 mount.
With Exacta mount there are different types of adapter. To be sure choose one that not allow infinity. Those are special for "fullframe" cameras like EOS 5D.
Others are only for crop cameras, with infinity.
And some newer ones are for fullframe and infinity - but I would not trust those without thorough testing with the lenses I use.

Thank you very much, Sibil, Buylongterm, Levina de Ruijter!
The Trioplan 100 is the lens I love most. It gives my a lot of images I like - and additional others seem to like too. It took me some time to create images that have a bit more than some soap bubbles somewhere in the image.
It is a very special lens, sometimes very good - and for many images nearly worst lens to take.

There are much cheaper ways to get the Trioplan look - for example with the cheaper siblings, the Diaplan projection lenses and a bit of DIY.
