Back from the USSR

My dearly beloved X-Pro1 asked for a little attention so I decided to treat her a nice vintage portrait lens, the Zenit Helios-44M. Those lenses were produced in old Soviet Russia from 1958 to the early 1990s and are best known for their very special bokeh and excellent portrait skills. Unsurprisingly the lens comes in heavy-duty production quality. I am sure it can be used as a weapon in case of emergency and I really wouldn’t wonder if the metal housing was made of the armour steel of a scrapped T-34 tank. :-)

Did a handful of test shootings yesterday: what a sweet shard.

(Sorry for the poor image quality. Contrary to usual practice the photo was done with an iPhone in low light.)
