Nice - looks like you've got a good example of that old lens!

Too much Oly gear.
Panasonic 12-35, 15. Samyang 7.5 fisheye. Laowa 7.5.
Assorted legacy lenses, plus a Fuji X70.

Re: helios 44m

I've been looking at the Helios for some time. I'm even tempted at a bit of optical surgery, but maybe it's not required on a FF sensor, wide. Praise indeed to Russian optical engineering and the ready supply of Vodka to quench the thirst in the hot working conditions in Leningrad (fake news).
