Helios 44-2 58mm F2 is a legendary lens, but it’s about to get even better! Welcome the new Helios 44-2 VLFV Cine Edition, proficiently rehoused by IRON GLASS.
Our goal was to bring out the best in this lens but addressing the mechanical quirks and limitations of the original body that make it unsuitable for professional, high pressure work environments where everything must perform at 100%.
By creating a new housing for this much loved lens, with improved its usability for video production considerably. Gone is the confusing preset aperture control, unreliable M42 screw mount and its wobbly body. Instead we now have a rugged, well designed and carefully assembled body that provides plenty of useful features, like integrated follow focus gears, permanent PL or EF mount, expanded focus distance markings, which can now be made imperial as well as metric, plus many more that you can learn about below.

Traditionally most lenses have a black body finish and we have done the same for our rehoused lenses, but we wanted to try something special for those of you who want to have visually striking lenses, so welcome our new WHITE version, lovingly nicknamed the “Stormtrooper” because of its colour resemblance to a certain well known film character.
This colour version is created by the anodising method, ensuring the same rugged, quality finish that won’t scratch easily!
You will be able to order all of our existing and upcoming rehoused VLFV Cine Edition Soviet lenses in this finish, but hurry because for now it’s a limited run of just 20 sets in this finish and even if we sell out quickly, we won’t be able to make new white parts until the second half of 2020.
To order head to our Rehoused Soviet Lenses section and pick the “white” body when ordering.
If you want the flexibility of 2 mounts, PL & EF, you can buy our PL to EF adapter which will give you a solid, reliable EF Mount when needed!
