Helios 40-2 85mm f1.5 in m42

 4/5, by Shafqat Altaf on March 27, 2015
I started love this lens after seeing some lovely images by this lens by Kelly Serada (http://kellysereda.com/bokeh/h1c223455#h1c223455).Ordered this lens in m42 mount on the website but did not receive this lens in the indicated shipping period and was promptly given a refund on request. One fine day got a call from the Post office to collect the lens almost after 3.5 months and was really delighted. The lens as expected was heavy and built like a tank. First test shots (sample attached) were surprising sharp in the centre with a lovely bokeh. However need to go out to test the famous Swirly bokeh.. Overall this lens is a must have for all bokeh fans, swirly or otherwise and i am very happy with the webiste too and have ordered another Famous Tair11A lens and eagerly waiting to receive and test it.

Shafqat, thank you that you reacted calmly to delivery delay. It was a fault of Russian post and Pakistan Post. I'm glad that you liked the lens.
Best Regards, Anatoly
