    Finally got my hands on the cult favorite Helios 44-2 58mm f/2. The lens is battered and bruised but still a ton of fun not just for the swirly bokeh, but for the shots in general.

    Swirly Bokeh !

    The trademark Swirly bokeh of the lens. Needs a little bit of juggling to find the sweet spot of the distance of subject and background

    Does amazing at close up shots as well

    Need to experiment some more with this
