Pros: swirly bokeh, flare all to be exploited, solid, beautiful colors, excellent rings

Cons: heavy, not very sharp in TA

Opinion: Optics that are worth every penny, I found it new, paid more than it should but perfect. The flares, if properly exploited, are really an amazing touch: I deliberately do not mount the hood. I would never detach it, it's a craze. The only real drawback, for me, is the weight, but solidity has its reverses. Be careful because the swirly effect is obtained at a given distance between the subject, background and shooting point.

Pros: Everything for the price

Cons: Nothing for the price

Opinion: Paid 50 euros by a private individual. Impeccable construction, fluid rings the right, sharp, excellent blurry, beautiful colors. Louso with adapter on a GX 80 and so I have a nice 100 mm for portraits of all kinds and non-macro flora at a neglitry cost. I intend to try it as a macro with a couple of loops. I'm passionate about vintage lenses

Pros: Fantastic lens: metal, soft rings (controlled in the laboratory), optical quality, very particular bokeh, sharpness, M42 attachment.

Cons: is not f 1.2; addiction...

Opinion: In love lost to vintage optics (even non-vintage). This one from the Helios series (like the others) is very convenient to use because of the very soft rings. The M42 attachment makes it possible to use it ( with adapter ) in manual, on almost all machine bodies both digital and analog. This is often underestimated because of the low-cost specimens that can be found. Only then, always the low-cost specimens, they have hard rings, mushrooms and truffles and sausages inside, reassembled lenses who knows how, poorly controlled diaphragms that in some cases would need to be cleaned and in some cases even oiled. Apart from that, the specimens that work and that have passed for a check in a photoreparation laboratory go great and the derisory cost of the lens is overpaid by the results obtained. I personally can only over-advise him. And anyway, once you use these, you also want to try the others that in succession are: the 85 mm, the 135 mm, the 200 mm and the fantastic 300 mm, but this is another story.

Pros: Bokeh, metal construction, cost, vintage yield

Cons: Focus a little hard, otherwise nothing

Opinion: It came to me 2 days ago and I immediately started playing with this beautiful toy... It should be said that I use it on canon Eos 6D reflex ina and many told me that mounting vintage optics on such a machine was a feat because of the focus.... I HAVE TO BLAME HIM... Precisely for this lens the ease with which I can focus directly from the viewfinder is amazing, I did not expect it ... The "hot" effect that you give the photos I couldn't give even in PP... Good sharpness, of course, not excellent but years later he still says his! The only sore note is the focus ring, but once you get into the habit it's love after a few shots

Pros: Vintage effect difficult to achieve with modern goals. Easily adaptable to Canon.

Cons: Given the price. Nobody

Opinion: Excellent vintage optics, with a beautiful blurry effect. Easily usable on canon, via adapter. Tried with excellent results on canon 6d mark ii and canon 4000d. Manual focus requires some gimmicks. I find blurry is better on FF than on APS-C. Besides portraits, I don't see any other uses. Also tested with macro extension tubes, but sharpness is not the best.
