Like many Russian vintage lenses, the Helios 40 is "heavily inspired" by the Carl Zeiss designs, and this 85mm f1.5 takes its inspiration from the Zeiss Biotar 75mm f1.5. Just like the Biotar, the Helios 40 is very much in demand and prices keep creeping up.

The lens is known for its incredible swirly bokeh and unique character, especially against busy backgrounds (especially trees, foliage or sources of light) the lens creates stunning swirly bokeh like no other. Imagine a Helios 44-2 (58mm f2) on steroids. 

Small dust and coating defect inside. NO EFFECT on image quality. Come and test it !

It is supplied with 2x coloured filters and the original box.
