Just aquired an MC HELIOS 44M-7 K

I am completely hooked on Helios lenses, and this one has been on my hit list for a long time.
Imagine my surprise when I found a a body with lens attached for less than a hundred bones!

Now if only I could find an 8 blade variant!

I'll post images of and from this lens as soon as I get it in my hands.

Helios 44M-7 K? Well, that is a new one on me! I was aware of the 44K-4 and thought that to be the only K-mount variant. I am looking forward to seeing your pictures and reading your impressions.

Just to update...
The lens was NOT a K mount
It took forever to come in and I was pretty hyped about getting my hands on something I thought was rare.

BUT... turns out it was just a normal M42 44M-7 (bummer)
Plus the read element has scratches on it, the front has small coating damages and the blades are sluggish. (sheesh) talk about piss-poor product description!

I went back the seller and he had another 44M-7 which was also described as EXCELLENT(like new) and unbelevably enough... the mout had to screws missing and the read element looked like it had been cleaned with sandpaper!

Anyways.... that's enough ranting for one day I suppose.
Cheers!
