Helios 44-2 58/2 (M42) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Helios 44-2 58/2 (M42)

Asking Price
37.00 USD

Item Location
Texas (United States)

Item Description
The LBA is strong in me and it is now time to sell-off some of my cherished gems (wifey says 50 lenses is too much). I disagree, but as the saying goes -- if momma ain't happy, ain't nobody happy. I have so many lenses in the 50-58 FL, and (don't tell the wife) I have another copy of this lens.

So up for sale is a Helios 44-2 58/2 M42 screw-mount lens lens. This lens is PRESET fully manual lens and uses the CZ Biotar optical formula. It is known for it's wonderful bokeh rendering and has an 8-blade aperture diaphragm. The body shows signs of wear with a bit of paint loss, but no dents or dings. There is a bit of dust, as should be expected, but nothing that affects the image. Other than the bit of dust, the glass is in great shape with no visible scratches or defects. There is a bit of oil on the aperture blades, but this is normal for PRESET lenses. Aperture blades movement is as it should be -- opening and closing without issue. Aperture rings and focus ring move as they should, as well. Comes with generic front and rear caps.

It will be packed carefully and shipped quickly. CONUS only, please.
