so, no aperture control at all - it will always be wide-open, at f1.5?

Yes, that's correct. Some examples of what the lens can do: Swirly Bokeh Helios Cyclop 85mm F1.5 - PentaxForums.com

People often get Helios 40 for swirling, which disappears when you stop down. I feel like there isn't much point to use it stopped down, as there are lighter and sharper lenses for that. I have the Helios, and I tell you, lugging it around (1 kg) you definitely feel it, so I wouldn't do it unless I wanted swirly bokeh. So from that point cyclops isn't a bad option.
