Lovin' on the Helios 44 (58mm f/2)

Finally, after 2 months of getting my Helios 44M 58/2, I could manage to get one genuine M42 to K mount adapter from US for my K-x. Lens has an A - M switch.

I found time to take some photos, pics shot indoor and in shade are looking good if not great, photos in bright sunlight and with flash are complete washout, with A - M switch in M Mode.

I saw in few forums and tried to change settings, still unable to select Shake Resistance & Input Focal Length. May be after these are set I may get better pictures.

your suggestions will be valuable to me, thank you.

Hi

In India we don't get any Pentax products, we have to get from either US or UK, got my k-x from UK.

I got Helios 44-M 58/2 lens, want to buy an adapter, please suggest whether this adapter (used) is Original Pentax adapter or not, is it worth buying for Rs. 1200/- .

Thanks
Sai

Thank you all

I will have to check if someone is coming from US to get the original M42 PK adapters, almost impossible to get in India.

Hi jbc

Sailing in the same boat :)

I have seen good reviews and suggestions regarding M42 mount lenses, today I got "Helios 44-M 58/2" lens, I am in the process of buying a suitable adapter to use on my Pentax K-x.

Can anyone suggest me if this adapter works.

Regards
Sai

Hi Santosh

Thanks for the information, it is film camera, if you want the model, I can find out and let you know.

In fact I am looking for a used prime lens, someone promised me in a weeks time, if that fails then I will bargain and take 40-80 zoom. I already have two kit lenses covering this range, still I am interested because I think picture quality with SMC lenses are good compared to DAL kit lenses.

Regards
Sai Kumar

Hi Friends
I casually asked in a studio regarding K Mount lens for my K-x, he took out a Pentax camera with SMC Pentax 40-80mm f/2.8 lens, I did't notice whether it is manual or auto. Price Rs. 1500/- with body.
Quality seems to be good, anyways I will ask my photography friends to check the quality, please suggest - is it worth buying and suitable for family photos and landscapes.

Hi Sudhakar

I will try to contact you while at Hyd.
