I mean... they are pretty dope! Got a bunch too. Whether the good ol' HELIOS... MIR-1B, Industar or Jupiter series or TAIR-11A etc, all good fun lenses, some of which still available as NOS (New Old Stock) and rather affordable, so it's hard to contain yourself. And not every year and generation of each lens instance is the same... so then you start getting different kinds of the same lens to compare... then you get into the 'Red P' editions and the ones with 'cm' expressed focal lengths.

Supposedly they'll soon be shipping my IGA HELIOS 44-2 58mm f/2 VLEV cinemod. Rehoused. 16 bladed aperture. PL-mount metric (with their Iron Glass Adapters PL to EF adapter). That one is going to be with me for a long long time. Hopefully one day I'll actually shoot it native PL.
