Leitz Nikon Canon Pentax Oly.. or Helios 1 by pagan-live-style Leitz Nikon Canon Pentax Oly.. or Helios 1 by pagan-live-style
Is it a Leitz Nikon Canon Pentax Oly.. or Helios lens ?

Click for full view!

This picture was made with an single coated Russian manual focus Helios 44-2 F2.0 58mm lens, on a Canon 60D body.

Picture of one on my Oly >>

Picture was taken at F2,0, and the sharpness at this stage is already very nice .

For shot with detailing at F4, see >>

The Helios 44-2 is an exact copy of a Carl Zeis Biotar from 1939.

I bought this one including the Zenith 3M body in its leather case for 3 euro at a flea market in Holland 2 weeks ago.

Helios 44-2 review: [link] and [link]

Moral for all Pixel Peepers, don't only look at the big brand names, search for these forgotten optical gems in disquise.

No ringing name, looks outdated, but optically they are killers in this digital age !!

hope you like it, greetz len
