CINE HELIOS 44-2 – Best Vintage Lens for Video
Helios 44-2 is a Russian lens however, its origin traces back to Germany. It’s infamous for being a copy of the Carl Zeiss Biotar 58mm. Back in 1936 the Biotar was initially developed for cinema use and adapted for Exacta mount. During World War II, the Soviet army has occupied the eastern part of Germany where Zeiss factory was. As a result, Russians obtainted the Biotar 58mm blueprints & formulas. The Helios 44-2 lens was born and has since become the most mass produced and widespread lens in the world. Obviously, it cannot be considered as the best lens, but its bokeh is definitely worth of the highest awards.
