The Russians are here – I picked up a Zenit 11 with a Helios 44m-4 58mm f/2 from Goodwill. It looked like it had seen little use – the body and lens were clean with no markings on them, as was the blue-lined black case. I used a Pentax Digital Spot Meter for exposure when I ran a roll of Fuji Acros 100 through it.

The bokeh on the Helios at f/2 was particularly swirly on a couple of photos.
