Great lens, nice pictures!
this weekend i went to a flea market a found a lens between some toys, i asked how much for it and payed 4 dollars for it.... it was the same Helios 44k-4, now im so happy! i didn't knew anything of this lens until i read this topic, it had some dust, but now is clean and clear.
I tested it last night and i'm really impresed with it, i'll try post some pictures soon.

pd: sorry for my english
That's an incredible deal!

You're gonna have some fun with that one.

4 bucks... that is crazy talk. I want one!

I hate to do this, but I will offer you a 500% return on your investment! In these trying financial times this may just be too good a deal to pass up.

LoL I thought I lucked out when I scored one for ~$25. haha. Reading this thread has prompted me to go shoot a little with the ol' gem.

All shot at f2.0, resized to 800x532.

I should have stopped down to f4 for enough DOF to get the whole bunch of flowers + bee.
