I’ve previously shared the more artistic side of this combination. Wide open the Helios 44-2 (mine says “Made in USSR” in ENGLISH on it!) produces a very unique swirl of bokeh around the edges of the frame, but as you can see here, when it is stopped down it becomes all business. It is very sharp and demonstrates little of the abstract character it shows at wider apertures. It really is a special bit of old glass. The EOS M is a great little camera for adapting old lenses to. Look for my review to go live of the camera system tomorrow!
