    A few with my Russian lens.

    I bought a Russian made Helios 58/2 on eBay for $9 + $20 shipping from Russia. Here are a few of the first shots with it, all @ f 5.6.

    I'd say you got your $29 worth of optical delight. ;-) Very nice!

    Thanks for your comments folks.

    Seems even the cheapest lenses have been escalating in price over the last year Shooter. Some sellers on eBay play a game of Buy it Now for $1 but the shipping is $50.

    I have a Helios 103 - Kiev mount. Is your mount the same? I'd love to use this lens on my E-P2 if possible.

    The Helios-44 is M42 mount. You need a Contax Internal Mount to use the Helios-103 on the EP2. Unless you modify it...



    It would be easier for the u4/3rds, you would not need to RF couple it like this one.

    I was tried it to modifies it. But I have seen that It had not given good result than previously and also not comfortable on the camera. So I will plan to get new lance in place of it.
