Up for sale is the crazy swirly bokeh monster the Helios 44-2. Lens has been converted to Canon EF mount and will work on all Canon EOS DSLRs and cinema bodies as is with no modification. Or on a Mirrorless body if you have a Canon EF adapter.


All apertures work and all are selectable, it is smooth and clear of oil. Glass is good has no fungus. Lens is all metal construction, has little play in the focus barrel but other wise It's perfect. Lens is capable of infinity focus!

Lens is a 58mm f2 , Zeiss Biotar clone. This is the rare US import model with Standard feet markings instead of meters.

I bought this lens hoping I'd shoot more portraits but just haven't gotten as much. So I'd like to sell it to fund something wide.

Asking $100 shipped and paypal'd.

Will accept best offer, but please be avised that $25 of the price goes to shipping, inssurance, paypal fees and the actual fuel cost to go to the post office. I'm not getting the actual amount you pay. Just 75% at best already selling as low as I can just to break even.

Ready to go, I ship within 24 hours of payment.

Sample shots were both wide open at F2.


Samples were taken on my full frame Sony A7 with a Canon EF adapter. Lens is in Canon EF mount, also compatible on Canon crop bodies.

I can and have shipped to the UK before :) unfortunately international Priority shipping is not cheap and I'd have to ask for $15 for the added cost.

Costs me $10 to ship domestic, but $25 internationally.

Still for sale, please only PM when you have the funds ready to go.

It's packaged up ready to go. Won't last long.


Helios still sells these brand new from Russia for $450 USD, so you can see how much you're saving.

$450 brand new? You might be mistaking it with the Helios 40-2.

That's the one, got the numbers mixed up. Thanks for the fix.


The one I'm selling is the rare American import version that has feet marking. Not the dime a dozen international version with meter markings...


Love russian lenses, up to rangefinder ones now.


Price drop, $75 takes it today.

Aww hell. For $75, I'll give it a try as a portrait lens on the A6K. PM incoming.
