Helios-44 Standard lens with coated optics for SLR cameras. It was created on the basis of the Biotar 2/58 lens (Carl Zeiss Jena), originally called "BTK" - "BioTar Krasnogorsky". Helios-44 is one of the most popular lenses in the world. It was produced in many varieties and variants at several enterprises in the USSR.

Resolution according to TU (center / edge): 35/14 lines / mm. Light transmittance coefficient: 0.08. Definitely, Helios-44 should be owned by everyone who is interested in using Soviet optics. This is not just a lens, this is an entire era. Helios-44 is a wonderful lens. No wonder his ancestor was Carl Zeiss Jena Biotar 2/58. This family of lenses produces sharp images from the widest aperture. In this case, the picture will be quite soft - portrait. Helios-44 has a signature bokeh character - it is a little swirling. P2123006 Aperture, sharpness, softness, 13 aperture blades, beautiful blur, long helicoid travel - all this makes Helios-44 an excellent portrait lens. Moreover, on the crop, when the EGF is lengthened, it will become even more convenient to use Helios-44 for portrait photography.
On the one hand, later versions already have an image of "consumer goods" (not very deservedly, strictly speaking). On the other hand, a serviceable and tidy version of the white M39 is now quite rare and therefore is not cheap. My Shop From Ukraine and We Deliver Products Worldwide.
