Helios 44-2 58mm F/2

Helios 44-2 58mm F/2 standard lens. 
Carl Zeiss Biotar 58/2 copy. The quality of the lens very good. Steel and glass.
49mm filter thread.
8 diaphragm blades.
F/2-16 max-min aperture.
Min focus 50 cm.
Preselect adjustment. 
The Russians do not keep execution standards. I have seen many versions of this lens is not having a multi couted lenses. The model here shows what appears to be covered with one layer of MC. Very intense.
Great Bokeh.


The symbol on the lens shows according to information provided on the http://cameras.alfredklomp.com/logos/ 


of producer: "ValdaiValdai: Valdai Optical-Mechanical Factory Valdai (may be currently known as Valdayskaya) is located about 250 miles NW of Moscow. Very little is known of this plant, but it has been a prolific producer of lenses for KMZ, and Zenit BelOMO. The SLR lenses bear the Helios name, and this plant has also produced many accessory lenses for RF cameras. For many years, this plant confused collectors, who dubbed it "Shishkebab Factory". Current status unknown. My thanks to Marc James Small, and Oscar Fricke."
