Pros: General quality, image quality, blurry.

Cons: Ghiera diaframmi hard, a peculiar focal.

Opinion: On APS-C undoubtedly a lens that is quite usable in portraits. On full frame someone considers it a very good "no meat nor fish". I have found it, to my surprise, in the suitcase of a Russian photosniper kit in pairs with the Tair 300 f 4.5... the seller perhaps forgot to tell me. in a well-protected suitcase ravine, a few weeks after the purchase, and, from the state of preservation I think never used, one day I found a plastic bag containing this jewel, well built, solid, finished well, and by the yield Amazing... closing the diaphragm a little bit will give you some very sharp images... realistic colors, although in my specimen they tend to be a cold, blurry amazing hair... In short... a lens that struggles to detach from the camera... used in macros only at full opening, having the classic diaphragms to be held down thoroughly to allow it to be adjusted (use extensions m42 without batting ring, alas), but I think it's fabulous by closing the diaphragm... Taken at a few pennies is a must have. The only note, in my specimen, is both the dial focus, and the diaphragms, a little too harsh.

Pros: All

Cons: Nothing but addictive

Opinion: A fantastic bokeh gorgeous colors. We have to take our hand for the diaphragm diaphragm. Beautiful lens bought from a few days love at first click. It is not very easy to put the subject at the right distance to have the famous blurred but the tests are made for this. I'm doing it to iosa. It's very inspiring and for the amount it costs it's really a blast.

Pros: Bokeh, constructive solidity, price, fun in use, yield

Cons: Not suitable for novices, MAF dial a bit duretta

Opinion: I have the PK-attack version, not M42, but I think it's the same thing. Chameleon lens, although it requires a bit of malice in being able to exploit it adequately and above all wants the light conditions that suit it. In fact, if put in the right context pulls out swirling bokeh very close to the Petzval (which is not quite right) and once you start using it becomes very fun and difficult to remove from the machine body! It is still a Helios so it tends to have more sharpness in the center, while on the sides it is softer even with a more closed diaphragm. A lens for those who love challenges and want to face them with a smile.

Pros: Swirly Effect, negligible cost

Cons: Don't Play with us

Opinion: Found used by Russia for €40! I mounted it on my Sony A6000 with an M42-NEX adapter, cost €10. From the menu you have to activate the shot without lens, of course use only manual, MAF included. Its particular swirly effect and aperture open at F2 guarantee a unique blur. If you can find a particular background you create really magical effects. It Suffers in backlight but it is not necessarily a defect. You never get tired of playing it. The Focus Ring is "oily", does not flow fluidly, sometimes it can be hard. Never even the colors are trivial. There are many models at similar prices. Given the cost is worth a chance. ATTENTION, Addictive!

Pros: Swirly effect, construction and handling

Cons: MAF uncertain, completely manual, does not communicate, so nothing EXIF

Opinion: The yield is the famous one of the Zenit, you have to use adapters rings and at least for attack Nikon trick to operate the diaphragms fixed to F2, for Nikon you lose the PDC, unless you use adapter with additional lens that of course does Losing quality to an already unincisive lens, but... What wonders can be pulled out, is so scarce that in the presence of humidity has nothing to envy to the famous and expensive Trioplan, all spending really insignificant figures that roam the 20-40 euros according to the version.. Very helpful, everyone should have a copy in the bag.. The shots are almost never sharp... but always magical...
