    Helios are copies of Zeiss Biotar when Russian tookover the Carl Zeiss factory after WW-II in East Germany which gave to many Zeiss clones like Helios, Jupiter, CZ Jena, Mir .. Helios is probably the most mass manufactured lens in the history with various series 44-2, 44-2M, 44-3, 44-4 ... 44-7. I believe 44-5, 44-6 & 44-7 are result of quality control with 44-7 being the best.

    My 44-6 is the favourite Portraight Lens on my E-PL5. Greta colors & sharp after 2.8 with wonderful Bokeh.

    Most of the photos are at f 2.5-2.8

    I have a 58mm f2.0 HELLIOS 44M with 8 blade aperture. It has that creamy bokeh and is quite sharp.
    Will try to post a couple pictures late.

    Hi Dave,

    There must be a separate thread for 44M or you can start one. This thread is for 44M-6. There were several variants of Helios and most of them have separate threads :)

    is it just me or would we all prefer to have all variants in one big thread?
