    Okay, another legacy lens for sale. This is a USSR-made Helios 44-2 58mm f/2 with 8 blades for smooth bokeh (with that “swirly” effect in certain shots). Glass is in very good shape. Lens will come with a Rainbow Imaging adapter and front cap. Image thread here.

    There is a bit of oil on the blades, however since you adjust the aperture manually it’s not a problem. This is the version with “continuous aperture” - use the outermost ring to preset your smallest stop, set your focus wide open, then rotate the aperture ring to set the aperture anywhere between wide open and your preset stop.

    See below for a few test shots taken with this lens (apologies for the uninspiring subjects/composition), all straight OOC jpeg from an E-PL1.

    Asking $35 for lens + adapter, including shipping to CONUS.
