Item details

Rare prominent Soviet lens MC Helios-44-3 58mm f2 with an M42 screw mount, based on the famous Biotar 58mm.
Multi-coated version with the best optical quality.

The lens is in mint fully working condition and looks almost like new, maybe a couple of lightest signs of use on the body. The optics are clear, without haze, fungus etc. A minimal amount of usual for an old lens dust inside. The focusing is working good. The barrel is clean. The aperture blades have light spots of oil.

I tested this MC Helios-44-3 lens with Zenit camera and it worked as should.
The lens fits modern cameras using a special adapter.
