The Zeiss Biotar 58mm f2 is the "original Helios", since the Russians copied the Zeiss design to create their famous Helios 50mm f2 series of lenses (44-2, 44m-4 etc…).
Comparing head to head the Biotar and the Helios 44-2, the Biotar has superior built quality, better colour and contrast, and the same swirl as the Helios.
