Dangerous toy in a bokehland

We are back to one the bubbly lenses I got to try a while ago. Out of quite a few of them this one (and the Helios 40-2) were the most memorable. And not because of the bonus that you can read about at the end of the post.
But because of how easy it was to take a decent photo with it.

It is one of the old, manual ones and it just rocks with the colours and sharpness. I didn't have to do much editing here to bright out the juicy colours.

And of course bokeh - because this is what I was looking for. Look at those bubbles!

I liked this one so much, that I got one for myself too :)

All the plants here were shot at my mums garden. Gotta say ferns are one of my favourite. The leaves are just so photogenic!

If any of you ever decides to get one (and I hope you do cause it is very cool lens) just be sure you don't eat it. This one is radioactive and I am not even kidding here :) It is quite known for it's properties.

Here is a radioactivity test someone did.


Great lens :D

Nahhh... It's my brothers. He lets me play with his toys when I have the chance. I don't have the R on mine.
I tried his lens first too, then I got my own.

I have no idea! She probably doesn't know either :D

Lovely bokeh. I have the made in the USSR Helios. Not sure if it is radioactive or not, but I do like how it does a "swirl" background.

Thanks!
I think the Helios is perfectly safe. I have it too (44-2). Cool cheap lens.
And I agree with the swirl. It's amazing!
