I picked up one of these lenses for a fiver attached to a Zenit E that also works; so far I am liking this lens a lot, though it's not the sharpest away from the centre. I also find the bokeh varies tremendously depending on what is out of focus (ie plants or buildings) and how dar way the OOF areas are.

I just inherited 3 1950's. Soviet lenses including a Helios-44. I love this lens! It's quicker to focus than the other legacy lenses I have. Nice pictures btw! They showcase the character of this lens well.

I really like the copy of this lens that I have; the centre is sharp enough, but sometimes I find the bokeh a bit crazy and distracting.
