MC HELIOS-44M-4 lens F2 58mm for M42 ZENIT PENTAX CANON NIKON

Product Description

MC HELIOS-44M-4 is a lens with springblend aperture designed for Soviet SLR 35 mm Zenit cameras. The lens can be fitted on the M42 Pentax cameras. First HELIOS-44 lenses were borrowed from Carl Zeiss BIOTAR lenses and issued since end of 1950th years in M39, then in M42 screw mount, and had not very good glory because were with low contrast in common... But latest versions of HELIOS-44 lens became very sharp. This famous lens was manufactured in the USSR, and features outstanding sharpness, contrast and color rendition. I saw photos taken with similar lenses several times before and I appreciated excellent pictures quality. In the main, most all Soviet and Russian lenses are exceptionally good and this one is no exception! It can be used with a lot of digital Micro 4/3 cameras with simple and inxpensive adapter. ITEM'S CONDITION: Like New The glass is very clean, with no any fungus, separations or scratches Aperture "jumps" correctly, focusing is enough smooth. Cosmetically the lens looks fine, just examine item's photos, please. All functions are available. * Focus 58 mm. * Angle of view about 42 degrees. * Relative aperture 1:2.0 (up to 1:16 with clicks). * Springblend aperture with push-up pin which closes the aperture when shutter release button is depressed or the shutter fires. * Aperture has no Auto-Manual switch, it shows aperture blades according with installed meaning when aperture pin is depressed. * Mounting M42 x 1mm groove, known as Pentax Thread Mount, same with a lot of old SLR cameras (Practica, Chinon, Yashika, Bessaflex etc). * Mounting for some modern SLR & dSLR cameras will not bring any trouble with well-spread M42 adapters. Adapter should have the hook which should hold aperture pin depressed, in other case you'll can not adjust the aperture because it will fully opened all the time. * The lens is well-applicable for digital cameras with Micro 4/3 system and other with working distance 45.5mm and less, with the use of adapters: All Sony NEX, Olympus, Panasonic: Lumix DMC-G1, DMC-GH1, DMC-GF1, DMC-G2, DMC-G10, Epson, Samsung and other. * Focusing from 0.5m. * Scale of distances in meters. * Filter mount M 52x0.75mm. * The lens was made in USSR at Krasnogorsk plant (the town of Valday) in 1990 We are more than happy to welcome any international bidders!!! We ship the item FREE WORLDWIDE! Item will be shipped via Russian Mail service immediately upon receipt of your payment.
