Zenit Helios-40 Rare 8.5cm 85mm f1.5 Swirly Bokeh M42/39 Lens -Cine Gear Mod-

(Check out our Victory Camera video on this lens)


Here is an excellent and quirky 85mm lens by Zenit. It's known for its swirly bokeh effect which goes a bit farther than ordinary bokeh. It feels as though the background itself is swirling behind your subject, giving another element of separation between your subject and the background. Look up sample images from this lens (or watch our video!) it produces very cool looking pictures.


This one has a fitted ring with gear teeth meant to interface with a follow focus system for video. This would make an excellent addition to a video kit as a close up lens.



This one is in excellent condition with light wear. There are a few very light marks on the front element, but they will not affect your image quality. Otherwise the glass is clean and scratch free and the operations are smooth.


Included are the caps, a shade, and a mount adapter that allows this lens to mount on M42 systems. It is made with a 39mm M39 mount and will not mount on M42 cameras without the adapter (included). Use it on an M42 system or adapted to mirrorless for video!
