Just picked another Helios, but this one is different from my older 44-2 as it has no Auotmatic/Manual switch, but optically they do appear to be on par with each other. Comments would be appreciated as with the current weather I've been trying out some still lifes.

We would need something better than B&W to judge. I doubt if you would ever find two Helios lenses the same anyway.

There are some good ones out there

Hi Algi

Sorry if the text is a bit misleading, I'm not comparing the two lenses it's the compositon I'm looking for comments on.

Regards

Sorry for the confusion. I'm not a big fan of B&W on digital so
I can't really comment.

It might have been better with the bottom of the bottle in focus?
The lighting looks OK, but I think you need to add one or two
other items to the picture.
