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.
