    The Helios 58mm is a Russian Biotar -exact copy.

    If you shoot B&W look for Takumars that look yellowish when you look through them. These are the radioactive glasses with a nice light yellow filter built in

    The 85/1.8 SMCT was as good a lens as there is, even in comparison with the best of Nikon and Canon. The 50/4 SMCT Macro was also excellent. I found the 28/3.5 only average but a lot of people like it.

    Thanks to everyone for the info so far, I've started sorting through the Spotmatic & 50/1.4 lenses on Ebay for a start.

    Was there ever a grip (ala Tom Abrahamsson's Rapidgrip or the Bessa grip and so many others) made for the Spotmatics, or another company's that would work?
