Pros: Construction of war, blurred, negligible cost (paid 15 euros) lightweight and possibility to take it apart to swap the lenses, all manual.

Cons: At this price no one, maybe for chì has FF must be careful not to focus to infinity (tap on the mirror)

Bought a few days ago and it was love at first sight indeed shot. I had seen pictures taken by the latter on this forum and I thought that blurred and yield were due to an adequate pp instead photos already come out so ... Let's say a form of art in itself (so to speak). Not to mention if you reverse the front lens. leaves a blurred so special that you will not believe their eyes. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to try their hand at special closeup portraits of various kinds.

Pros: Construction with noble materials (iron and glass only), Vintage charm, low price,

Cons: I have not found any

Given that I am a simple photographer, I bought this lens a few € by reading the various posts that are opened on vintage lenses, and to measure myself with manual focus. I admit that after the initial "trauma" I enjoyed learning how to use it, in managing the fire and the diaphragm, in programming the adapter ring with confirmation chip (which I recommend to everyone) in understanding how to make the PP images. .. Basic is a good school for everyone ...

Pros: Sharp, sturdy, timeless charm, out of focus ... and reminds me of when I was young!

Cons: Nobody considering that it is a true vintage

Bought about a few years ago with a Zenith body about 40 years ago, and accompanied me for almost twenty years, even after I had equipped myself with Nikon. Splendid lens that should be known to be used in full manual or step-down mode. I exhumed it to use it with great satisfaction on a Canon 1300D with Gobe adapter ring. It can not compete with modern high-end optics but with those of the mid-range if it is great. Perfect for portraits on APS-C can be used with satisfaction even in inverted macro or with extension tubes. It is a pleasure to occasionally give yourself moments of real photography and fuck automatisms, stabilizers etc etc ... the one in which you are only you, your lens and the photo you have in mind. Try it for portraits with a blurred effect and you will always carry it with you. It makes you want to go back to the analog ...

Pros: Blurred by fear, price, construction, robustness,

Cons: not received

An economic lens, indestructible, which gives a sense of magic to the photos as any vintage lens that respects ... Very little cost (I paid 40-50 euros with the included adapter for the Fujifilm system) .. The rendering is fantastic, especially on portraits, better than many much more expensive lenses ... I just finished writing a review on this lens and if you want to read it I leave you the link that will send you to my site http: // www.giuseppetripodi.it/zenit-helios-44-2-58mm-f2-0/

Pros: Price, Bokeh

Cons: And who sees them ?!

My specimen has just locked the diaphragm ring, so alas, I will only use it to f2 ... that's just what I've always done with this goal. RnI do not think there's anything to say, just do a search in google writing "helios 44-2" and then the reviews are no longer at all.rn my specimen at f2 shows great sharpness if I stay within about 2 meters, plus tends to lose a bit of incisiveness. It's better not to shoot in the backlight or the sun just out of the frame because, apart from the flare that is always lurking, you really lose too much incisiveness. The best of it is with the foliage or a constant background such as a grass, fields of flowers or pebbles. The swirly effect in my specimen is marked but not excessive and used on both apsc and FF I can say that there is no story on FF, all the other pasta.rnBut without looking obsessively on the effect of his bokeh he always succeeds give photoor with a unique character, in its magical way. rnrn I use adapter with confirmation chips and I had to adjust it to -20 in the room. Definitely I would not advise those who can not make microregulation.
