This Helios 81H-2/50 i got from ebay for about 35$. While glass is good it required some service for loose screws etc which did myself.But its performance checked both on my Nikon D5200 direct and on Canon EOS 350D via adapter both are so terrific.Saying terrific as i found it beat out my many other named & famed classic lenses of Nikons, CZJ Pancolar & Supertakumar etc in Image resolution, color & contrast both in close up and at distance.It is unbelievably great at such price.With correct exposure no further image adjustment is needed.Love so much the lens.If one in love with photography not having this lens for sure missing a lot.Just better leave all technical reports and reviews.Grab one and start shooting.It will never disappoint.For its price it is available it is truly a great lens. Image details: Tulasi plant in bloom Macro like shot, Nikon D5200, ISO 100, 1/250, F5.6 in Manual mode.Day light condition.

Hi, what adapter did you use on Canon? I bought a M42 adapter which goes perfectly on the Canon body but it does not fit at all the Helios 81 lenses. Guess the adapter was not right?

As my Helios lens is of Nikon mount i used Canon to Nikon adapter on my Canon.If one use a Canon to M42 Adapter then have to use M42 Mount Helios lens.
