Item details

Prominent Soviet lens Helios-81M 53mm f2 with Nikon F bayonet.
The early version of the famous MC Helios-81H 2/50.

The lens is in excellent++ working condition with light signs of use (see photos for details). The optics are clear, without haze, fungus etc. Usual for an old lens dust inside and several tiny cleaning marks on the glass that can not affect image quality. The focusing is smooth. The lens barrel is clean. The aperture blades are free of oil and work as should.

The lens fits well for Nikon cameras with F bayonet.
I tested this lens with a Nikon DSLR camera and it worked as should.

52mm filter
6 aperture blades
Aperture range 2-16

I ship via registered airmail with a tracking number.
I do my best to describe an item in details, but if you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

The delivery time is usually 14-30 day to the USA, 30-45 days to Canada, 14-21 days to EU and 21-60 days to other countries, but sometimes it could be longer, for example before and during Christmas and New year holidays etc.

Although I`m not responsible for how an international mail services work, I shall always do my best to help you if you think that the shipping time is too long.

Note to customers from Italy. Due to the Italian postal service slow work delivery to your country may take from 3 weeks to 2 month and even more in some cases. I can not be responsible for slow delivery, can not make it faster and can not help with parcel tracking, because Italian post does not support this feature for most of the small parcels.
