Pros: Compactness, sharpness, bokeh swirly, flare resistance, price, vintage

Cons: Nobody

Opinion: One of the most beautiful surprises among the vintage goals tried. Unreachable value for money. Sharp even at maximum opening. Manual fire easily manageable thanks to the wide and generous dial in the calibration. Incredible flare resistance. It features beautiful portraits featuring its famous bokeh swirly. Impossible not to have in the kit.

Pros: Colors, sharpness already in TA, bokeh always nice, price

Cons: No one saw the cost of 30 euros

Opinion: Fantastic optics, as the detractors of Russian optics say, this copy of the Zeiss Biotar 58mm f2, is fantastic. I was lucky enough to find the latest version, 44M-7, at 30 degrees, never better spent money. The bokeh is always nice, at least until F2.8, but for the swirly it takes a bit of practice. RECOMMENDED STRA lens for those looking for original shots with a special touch. The only mole, suffers so much backlight, but if you like, flares are insured. Vote 9

Pros: Colors, sharpness (envied by so many goals even top-end), ridiculous cost, particular and interesting bokeh

Cons: Absolutely no one

Opinion: A very interesting vintage lens, I recommend it to anyone who wants to experience a manual lens without spending a fortune. Better on FF to have a precise 58mm and not be too long, it's fine even on APSC even if you have to consider the multiplication factor. Easy to find for the big productions that made but: check the lenses that there are no mushrooms and that all the nuts are in place. Having said this super recommended, the 50 euros best spent.

Pros: My specimen is a crazy blade and at the same time with an amazing bokeh and creamy vent typical of the Helios.... it lends itself to any photographic genre giving a very high quality especially when you consider that including shipping costs is around 50 euros...

Cons: it does not hold the backlight very well and wrapped you create halos on the sides of the frame....

Opinion: Optics to have both for the fantastic bokeh and for the 360-degree yield on any other photographic genre.... Mounted on the a7 you have a very comfortable pair to carry around, even in the pocket of any jacket or kway, in fact it is the optician that I use the most... I have published very few shots made with this optics but in hard disk I have an infinite number of photos, more than anything, on the type of photo bokeh, I could publish for years a photo a day... I have nothing else to say except that, I deeply love this optics....

Pros: Price, bokeh, weight and size, Swirley effect

Cons: Color rendition

Opinion: I took it with Nikon F mount and use it on FF to make the most of the effect of the bokeh. My specimen is mechanically and optically very good. The best effects of the blur are produced at full aperture (on FF) while, with regard to the sharpness at open apers, it is sufficient only in the center. If it closes a little it improves considerably. I think the weak point is the reproduction of colors. It is suitable for b/w photos. I have other lenses Helios 58/F2 that have similar features. Those interested in the purchase should know that the outstanding copies of Nikon F-adapted lenses can interfere with the FF mirror because, in order to achieve infinity focus, they are modified with the rearmament of the rear doublet. I myself have adapted one of these M42 screw-pitch lenses by simply unscrewing the back. It works, with the necessary precautions. The M42-Nikon F adapters are located a little money on Chinese sites. I do not recommend those with the built-in lens because of the often poor quality. For any details are available.
