With the same tripod ring? Maybe that's the real problem?
Yeah mine doesn't have a tripod ring.

You mean that Helios isn't doing the repair for free?? Wow, their customer service has really gone down hill!

And this, after Soviet spies risked it all to obtain the only known copy of the super-top-secret specifications of the K-mount!
ROFL

Love the bloody thumb print!

Pity the Helios 40-2 is M42!

Incidentally, this isn't a new idea. I think Minolta did something similar in the 80's.
Not just Minolta. Use of an articulating mirror hinge was fairly common with K-mount cameras in the early 1980s. My Ricoh XR-7 is made that way as is my Pentax Super Program. (Yes, I know, continuing the thread hijack...but it is important to point out that the problem of mirror clearance is not something foreign to the K-mount and that even legacy bodies were made that way.)

The irony makes their sacrifice even more tragic...
