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.

Maurizio Colo
Pros: Lightweight and compact, bright, versatile, price, blurred, contrast and sharpened closed-loop sharpness.

Cons: No counter: I bought it for defects.

Bought on Ebay by a seller who restores the lenses, just opened the package I thought I had trimmed a new lens. But no: I paid for £ 63, a bang in comparison to the average, but it's really immaculate. Well, I proceed with the review: mounted on the Canon 80D with adapter with microchip of maf confirmation, it turned out to be a micro tacker that looks like a fork on the body. The specimen in my possession has fluid rings, clean blades and "new" lenses. Put to work, TA has unveiled the bokeh that I heard so much about: I was almost moved. The minimum distance of maf is really minimal and allows close shots. Brought out of the house during the golden hour, already at f4 begins to have a fine contrast, sharpness and saturated colors at the right point. He will be a great, small, easy-to-work companion. The purpose for which it is intended is an ambitious project. I hope to know how to squeeze.

Darp
Pros: Construction, blurry, closed diaphragm, price, on nikon corrects the draw easily

Cons: Lack of MC treatment

I do not want to spend a lot of words on this lens, talking about defects is useless ... because the defects are the qualities, that is blurry with swirl effect and unconventional and not modern image ... so give a little more time if we want .. For 20 € the advice for those who want to start evaluating vintage lenses, including a lens that fits on nikon fast and with a 1 € adapter and an orb to adapt the rear optical assembly.

Caulim
Pros: Construction, weight, size, bokeh, price, sharp

Cons: Flare, decline in contrast

I have this goal for about a year and I use it on nikon d7000. The construction is excellent, completely in metal, embedded front, compact and very lightweight. Using it on nikon loses infinite focus so you can use it simply for portrait or inverted macro. As portraits I have to say that it is a good lens, sharp already at 2.8 but still great even af ??2. It has an unmade blur with its swirly effect and this makes it really great for this type of photo. I recommend the use of a hood because it is very subject to contrast cracks (recoverable without PP problems) and flare. The maf is not too simple on nikon since the distance scale can not be referred to, so you have to rely on the green ball. That is why I find it a goal in which the photo should be studied before it is taken and it is difficult to capture moments of spontaneity (obviously who is more experienced in focusing by hand may not experience this problem). As regards theMacro I have to say that it was a real surprise this lens. Only with an inversion ring can you achieve an excellent playback ratio and with extension tubes you can reach truly amazing magnifications! In short, with a few euros (about 50) you have a great lens for your portrait and with 20 you can have a macro that gives you great satisfaction. To be absolutely and not be scared if you lose the fire to infinity, the lens gives great satisfaction anyway !!!

Pros: Amazing Bokeh, paltry price, weight, construction.

Cons: Defects? Are we joking?

Purchased on Juza for only 20 EUR, Helios 44-2 produces images of superlative, modern outperforming targets over 1000 euro.rnAdattato on my Fujifilm XE2s, this fabulous lens MADE IN USSR, is giving me the fabulous outdoor portraits. The focus is what you can easily find on the net, a blurred fairytale. What struck me is also building: iron and glass, stop. I recommend it to everybody.
