Helios 40-2 85mm f/1.5-22.0

Made in Russia by KMZ.
The details are mostly the same as those for the older 40 model except for the following:
The 40-2 has a rotating tripod mounting bracket, unlike the fixed bracket of the older 40 model.
The 40-2 seems to be only available in black finish, unlike the older 40 model which seems to only come in a silver/white finish.
The 40-2 has a standard 67mm filter thread, unlike the non-standard 66mm filter thread of the older 40 model.
Like its predecessor the 40-2 is a very good portraiture lens and it has very nice bokeh too.
