Breathtaking Analog Photos Taken with Helios 44-2 Lens

Helios-44 is a Soviet copy of the Carl Zeiss Biotar 58mm ƒ/2 lens produced under the Helios lens brand. The lens is currently made in Russia for the M42 lens mount.

The lens was manufactured in huge quantities, so now is available for purchase, despite the fact that its production was discontinued in the early 1990s. This is one of the most popular lenses produced for the Zenit-E camera.

Helios 44-2 lens is quite sharp. Fine suited for portraits, with their pleasantboke, and for the landscape and even in some cases, macro shooting. You can also note that the lens is very rarely catch birds with one stone, as it has abuilt-in lens hood. Helios lens 44-2 at aperture 2.0 unpleasantly strong lathers, but starting with 2.8 the picture becomes dramatically better. Here's some of examples of analog photos taken with the Helios 44-2 lens:
