      There is nothing common in the design of lenses.

      Takumar and Helios are structurally and optically heaven and earth. And a slight external similarity is just a coincidence.

      Helios 44 was ripped off by Carl Zeiss Jena Biotar

    Please note that the designated version is just thorium (it was exactly the same, checked with a dosimeter on occasion).
    And its geometric luminosity is 1.4, but taking into account the light transmission - about 2.2-2.5, or even less. Of course, this is individual and can be corrected by irradiation with mercury UV. But I did not meet exact measurements.
    The rest of the lens is chic, it has a very beautiful picture on the open. The bokeh is great.
    However, whether anyone needs all this with such a T-aperture is a question, of course. I once refused in favor of 13 lep. Helios-44 with MS lenses (reviewed here).

      The review option is a bit lighter than the Nikon 50 / 1.8 AF-S, because the T-stop in this instance is not bad

        I had one, I gave a picture like a Kenon poltos at 2.0-2.2 on an open expopair, I just yellowed how terrifying it was. For a day of frying under UV (soft), yellowness disappeared and was no more than with the old white helios, but alas, the t-stop nifiga did not grow and the lens’s lumen was at least more neutral, but a light gray filter was wound in front ..

        IMHO, but T-stop is better to evaluate with manuals not linked by electronics. Relative to the standard with the light transmission coefficient known from the passport (Helios MS are good in this regard - they have close to 1). Then the conditions will be equal - different chips (from the adapter ring, from the branded glass, or even a missing chip) often change the operation of the exposure meter.

        If you shoot in M, then nothing affects the work, compared with helios the result of expopair with kenon is the same.

    Kenon crop. (100d, 1100d, 350d). Budget - if it really helps to catch good shots, then up to the price of Canon 50 1.4. It seems to me that something old will give a more pleasant picture than modern ones. They're autofocus though. for example, I took 37a for myself - I was sooooo pleased. working with focus is a pleasure. (here too, if there is something 100-140mm faster than Jupiter and the same pleasant work would be grateful. the camera is the same)

    Senks in advance!

      Take Helios 44 any. It is not so expensive. Through the adapter it already gets up on Canon quietly. f2, I think it will be enough for you, but more is already indecently more expensive.

    There is one unpleasant feature of these Takumars, Yashiks, Geksanons, and so on - they are very fond of withdrawing from the parcels by the customs. Also, there is already infa about the lenses selected during screening at airports. In general, fixed gamma ray sensors make life difficult for photographers.

    helios is not an option. tried it several times. There are 2 pieces. I don't get them into focus. maybe such an assembly came across. I do not know. almost by all the time .. or are they just so "harsh" ..

      With a manual, you can normally get into focus only on close-ups such as a facial portrait or a flower. If the object is further than a couple of meters, then nothing is visible, you have to rely on the prompt in the camera, and this is a lottery. Arkady correctly said that if you don’t get Helios, then with 1.4 it will be even worse.

        this is a serious "advantage" of DSLRs - it is difficult to focus or impossible at all on manuals

    I need a more expensive option. not in the sense that this one is cheap, but in the sense that you need 40-50 f1.4-2. 2.8 I do not consider .. but something Arkady is silent .. :)

      And what can I say, if you didn’t get into Helios, then you won’t hit with 50 1.2 / 1,4 (it’s twice as difficult, because the aperture is twice as wide). Because I personally see only the path to autofocus options

      I am very sorry, but what about the excellent Tamron 45 / 1.8 VC? In China, it can be bought for $ 220 for a version closer to the new one, and there is autofocus, and the optics are excellent, and the stabilizer is excellent, and the body is excellent ... And the open aperture is fully operational, and even sigma art is superior in sharpness, especially in the corners. And from manual Sears (Rikenon) 55 / 1.4 - but it is difficult to find, from expensive and elite - Voigtlander 58 / 1.4, but for 450 and for life. The Sigma 50 / 1.4 EX is also available for $ 200, also a great option with a working F1.4

        For the money you specify, you can buy in the Russian Federation only Sigma 50 / 1.4 EX DG in a shabby condition. In good for $ 250-300.

    I heard that the yellowness from the rear lens will go away if you hold the inverted lens for a day or two in the sunlight. Its UV, they say, removes yellowness. What do you say, photographers?

      I treated one Sigma with a “blue” UV lamp. Medical devices do remove some yellowing. But you have to sit there for a long time. It will probably be more productive in the bright sun.

      Any source of radiation removes yellowness, visible light, not only UV, will suit just like just sun. Powerful LEDs or on the balcony on a sunny day. Or even just at home outside the window, but for a long time.

    Just a great review! Excellent demonstration in the video version on YouTube. I now know for sure that having a Pentax SMC 50 mm f 1,7, this lens is no longer needed. In the open, well, very strong optical defects. Once again I was convinced that you should not expect a good lens from this model.

    If you like SMC Takumara, then the absolute gem of the line is 85 \ 1.8. Here it is also necessary to clarify what is meant by the "ideal pair", especially in relation to 50 mm, since in connection with fifty dollars, personal taste preferences are very significant. As for Biotar, the picture quality of the 17-blade version is so good that it deserves respect. Then it won't fall apart in your hands ...

    Great optics. Okay, comfortable, beautiful, reliable.
    The yellowness disappeared in a day on the windowsill - in due time ..
    Now in the south everything is much faster).
    There the impression is that the lens is the lens of strife - there were several - all behaved differently.
    In general, everyone likes Takumy Pts. I took these thoriums apart to a screw. Excellent constructive. There is no danger - an ordinary kitchen knife is much worse. And what can I say about the plug!)

      I have no smc - no yellowness. Works on Sonya. Outwardly very shabby. The screw-in hood once pulled out a piece of thread, but the filters are holding. on the open with sharpness, it's a problem, but already with f2 excellent sharpness is about the same as on sony 50 1/4 sal ... the colors of the lens with auto \ white balance \ are very natural under normal daylight, also with LED lamps. well, but on sevens and others for several years now, I assigned a focusing magnifier, I pressed the button 42 times, and precisely focus on the manuals. 7.tr \ from dealers \ and so-2-2tr. And it's not a pity to wag the old killer of planars on the bags.
