[SOLD] M42 lenses: Helios 44-2 (58mm/f2) and Carl Zeiss 58mm/f2 (Worldwide)

Helios 44-2 58mm/f2 SOLD!(manual focus screwmount) Clean optics, wornn body. Nice lens. Choose your background carefully (distant foliage with some contrast or close focused on something) and you can get some swirley bokeh. Cool lens. Beware: this is a gateway drug to other Russian glass. $20US plus shipping

Carl Zeiss 58mm/f2 SOLD!(manual focus screwmount) $25US plus shipping - sadly I think it has the beginning of some hairy fungus threads inside. The rings to change the aperture require 3 hands (awkward design) but they do work. I keep it wide open at f2 -- why not? Clean it out or use it as is and it's a killer little lens. Zeiss for $25US plus shipping!

Terms: Paypal only (I pay the fees), insured shipping available in the US at the buyers expense. All international shipping will be insured and therefore not cheap. I do my best to keep PM's and such in order and I will move down the list of interested parties. I generally ship via USPS on Saturdays. If you need something quicker, I can ship via another method on a weeknight at your additional expense. Thanks & don’t hesitate to ask questions.

The Zeiss - trying to focus on any irregularities in the lens. There may be bubbles in the elements themselves which could be normal.

Thanks Ira -- I loved that Helios -- cool little lens. It certainly got me interested in Russian lenses.
