|Zenit E with Helios 44-2 lens|
A couple months ago when my wife asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I told her a Helios 44-2 lens for my Fujifilm X-E1. It's a lot of fun putting classic lenses on this camera because it turns it into a manual experience, much like what I did for many years in the film era. Besides, these old lenses have more character than finely-tuned modern lenses. The Helios 44-2 is known for its swirly bokeh.

The Zenit E that my wife purchased is in great shape and seems to be in perfect working condition. It's very clean and doesn't show its age much at all. Well done!

I did attach the lens to my X-E1 (using an adapter) and snapped a couple of pictures from my yard. It worked! I look forward to making more digital images using the old glass.
