Item Description
Helios 77M-4 MC 50mm f1.8 M42 mount lens for sale. Lens in very good condition. There is NO fungus, NO haze, inside the lens may has some minor dusts, but nothing will effect on the image. I do see very tiny scratches on front and rear elements, may have some clean marks, but nothing will effect on the image. The aperture blades clean without oil, I don't see any residue on it. Very less paint lost on the exterior and the lens looks like new. Please check all the photos. Focus ring move smooth, and aperture control stop on every click. This lens has a aperture push down pin to do metering, but when I use this lens on Pentax K3 or Sony A7R, you will have to find a way to keep the push pin always push down, so what I do is to use 3 very tiny ring to hold it down, so the aperture blades can open and close when I turn the aperture ring. You can let me know if you still want me to keep those 3 small ring in the lens or not, It will only take me 2 minutes to take it out, but it will probably take you 3 hours to find the ring from store and make it work, so your choice.
I would give 8.5 for this lens cosmetic condition and 8.5 on its optics, 9 for its performance. Last 4 pictures are taking before listing, all hand hold, no tripod, no PP, for your reference only.
Comes with the lens only.
Asking 80 USD, shipping and paypal fee included in the sale price.
