The Helios 44-2 is an old Russian lens that came with the Zenit camera, and it was overlooked as being cheap and not very good. But it wasn't, it was only cheap. It's the best lens for the money, without any doubt.

It looks to be in good shape but it hasn't moved in years. At least its under cover, even if its main role is as a shelf for plants.

I must be lucky, , I have about 15 to 20 old Soviet lenses and every one is good. Some, like the Jupiter11 are superb in every respect. I've seen a lot of poorer quality lenses from some of the cheaper Japanese brands.
