Helios 44-2 58mm/2f. So sharp its scary. And when I say scary, I mean I can acctually see the pores in the face of my 2 year old. I can't do that with my bare eyes from 3cm.
i dont even know why i sold my copy of this lens, it was perfect... i hate myself now

I know why I sold mine - it didn't render that well. There was just something stale in the image quality I couldn't put my finger on exactly. Must've had something to do with the whole "Zeiss copy" thing.

By comparison, my 135mm f/2.8 Tokina has attracted praise from some very picky photographers.
