13. Helios 58mm F2.0 IMG_0878

This is the last lens I’ll be showing on this exact bedside table as I moved out shortly after this series and I’m not even remotely attached to the pine quality of probably ikea.

I’ll still use the DIYcam for testing, just for consistency, and I do have the lamp, cup, tin and CD stack somewhere. As of now, I have 4 new lenses to show and test out, including this exact lens… You’ll see.

This is an old portrait lens with pretty strange parameters and some quirky features.
There is a whole lot of distortion, and like I described previously, the focus plane here is very convex, similar to the Prinzflex 28mm lens I reviewed.

It also has a smooth aperture ring which is perfect for filming.
