Helios 44m-4

I bought Helios 44m-4 lens. It is old, manual Soviet lens. I have got mine from Etsy from Ukraine.
Today I tried it for the first time with my almost dead zombie aloe vera and i am so excited about it. I can’t wait to have more time to play with it bit more. I wonder if I will be able to create that famous swirly bokeh 😃

      1. It makes a lovely macro lens on the EPL1, yes they are a bit better than dslr’s, the only downside is the lack of a viewfinder, I bought a VF2 electronic finder for mine, it wasn’t cheap. If you can find an OMD EM5 at a good price it would make good combo.
