My new toy came in last week, through the mail, and thanks to a very conscientious seller, it was a complete body package with a strap, body cap, battery, a new USB charger, a 2GB CF memory card, a card reader, and a USB data transfer cable, all in a super excellent condition.

Got the battery charged, changed the strap to my favorite, mounted an EF 40mm F2.8 STM which I had lying around for quite a while now, turned the camera on, and 'Hey Presto!', it's all go. Popped out of the front door, grabbed these few JPG shots, and had the images post-processed on my old digital image editing and management software.

Everything works great, I couldn't ask for more, really.

I did not expect this, look at the images, what a pleasant surprise. Bought the lens to complement the listing of Minolta MD-mount lenses that I already have on my shop page, and found it to be in excellent near-mint external condition, with very clean and clear glass, very smooth focusing, and all. The image test was done on the Olympus E-P5, shot wide-open, and handheld.

Helios "Made in Japan" lenses were produced for TOE (Technical and Optical Equipment Ltd), a Soviet-owned British Company that sold Zenit cameras and Soviet electronic goods in the United Kingdom and the Netherlands. To complement its range of photographic gear, TOE imports and sells generic Japanese lenses and rangefinder accessories as Helios products.
