Buy & Sell Listing - Want to SellSelling Helios 44-3 M42 mount Prices $75 Location colorado Ships to CONUS Description I have a very good copy of this well renowned lens. It is a copy of the Zeiss 58mm f2 Biotar. It is Soviet made with a serial# indicating 1990 as year of production. The 44-3 is the 1st model with multi coatings. It has an 8 bladed iris, that moves freely, providing a unique bokeh. There are no clicks, so this might be a really nice video lens. It has 2 aperture controls for preset focusing. I used it on a fuji xe-1 with an m42 adapter. It focuses relatively closely to infinity ( a little past). The focus throw is smooth and buttery, not stiff at all. The focus ring does not rub against the adapter as is common with this version.It has only slight internal dust and the glass is in excellent condition for its age. If you've ever wanted one but were afraid to order from the former USSR, here's your chance. Front and rear cap included. The 1st three photos are f2, 2.8 and 4 all settings equal. The rest are at f2. Shot on an xe-1 handheld.
