Folks, you should know that Billy Joe is actually igilligan, the Helios man himself. Sorry I've outed you, but you deserve our gratitude for introducing numerous forumites to the "Russian Limiteds".

I was able to wrangle a few inches of extra closeness from my Helios 44M by using a flanged adapter. Clever me.
