  1. Thanks for your input Bioskop. Inc.    I love the Helios (just ordered a 44-m too) and am most certainly going to purchase a Jupiter-9 so your suggestion of sticking to single-coated Soviets makes sense.    That MIR 47 certainly looks interesting, don't seem to be many knocking around though, I shall do some more research.     Thanks for the forum link I will take a look around, but I asked the question here as I was looking specifically for advice from a video rather than stills perspective as what is desirable in a lens for one is not necessarily so for th
  2. Thanks again Paulio, I'll look more closely at the MIRs.   As a potential longer candidate alongside the Jupiter-9 I'm reading some nice things about the Carl Zeiss Jena Biometar 80 mm f/ 2.8 with the pentacon six mount, I've never tried an adapted p6 mount lens, has anybody shot with one of these Ziess babys on a dslr?

  4. Hey guys I'm new here.   I recently came upon a Helios 44-2 58mm prime lens and have been very impressed with it's unique character, image quality and sharpness even wide open, especially for the very reasonable price of £4 uk sterling, and it's de-clicked preset type aperture is ideal.   I'd like to complement it with a couple more vintage primes, one around 85mm and the other around 28mm.  I shoot a lot of HD DSLR professionally and often find myself in poorly lit, indoor "rock up and shoot" situations, so the priority for me is to have glass that is fast and stays relati
