First decent outing with Helios 44-2. Walked past a junk shop last week and picked it up (with a Zenit Camera) for £25. Camera is junk, but super impressed with the results from the lens. No issues with hitting the mirror on the 1ds Mk iii.

Here's a picture of the adapter - the metal section has detached from the plastic, and is jammed into the back of the lens. I haven't been able to remove it, so gone back to duct tape.

https://www.amazon.com …-Mirrorless/dp/B00AUKE5​AG (external link)

The duct tape if grey and I was worried about light leakage, but put plenty of little overlapping strips on and it seems OK.

That adapter is almost like an extension tube and adapter all in one.
This is the adapter I use on my M42 lenses:
https://www.amazon.com …T=_SX300_QL70_&​dpSrc=srch (external link)
Very simple. All metal construction. See if you can remove what's left of the thing you were using and bag it and get this one.
I think you can twist pretty hard to get the piece of adapter off of that Cyclop. That thing's built like a tank and I doubt you'll damage it.

edit:
Ahh, never mind. I see you're using the EOS-M. My bad.

Yes I've got a couple of the EOS - M42 adapters, which I used with the the 70D Can't believe quite how jammed the adapter part is into the the base of the lens. Never mind, duct tape works. Just need practice now. Read on a thread about using tin foil over the front of the lens to provide an aperture.

Thanks to you both for your support and help.

Nice sharpness with that Cyclop. Tough to nail it like you did.

Thanks really only hit it with the lemon, but it's a fun lens to use. Just waiting for a filter to arrive and might try it with water long exposure.

The main purpose for picking up the MC Zenitar M2s was to perform the "magic bokeh" mod on it. On its own, it's not too bad a lens albeit, nothing spectacular. It was worth the $40 that I paid to perform a little surgery on it to give the effect seen in these examples. Still experimenting with subject placement, lighting and background distances and textures but the results so far are pretty neat. The focus is pretty soft at the center although that could be more a result of my crappy eyes with the manual focus than with the lens. These shots were kinda rushed so maybe if I took my time, used a tripod and prepared a little more, I could get more desirable sharpness. Anyhow, they're sorta fun for just goofing around.

All shot at f/2 as that renders the best bokeh effect just as you would with lenses like the Helios or Triaplans, etc.

Love these!!

How easy is the mod, and what lenses will it work with?

Thanks

I have a spare Helios 58mm 44-2 f/2 lens, and I'm thinking I could try the mod with that? Although I never had much luck getting much bokeh with it - but didn't play much, as the other Helios does it.
