I'll ask guys that bought lenses from me to post comments here.

Price is 600$ + shipping.

Shipping cost about 60-100$ because lens weight is more than 1kg.

Thanks for reply with working pictures!

I'm curious as to why it seems there are two different nameplates circulating. The one here shows the "MC" (multi-coated) designation: http://forum.mflenses.com/production-resumed-helios-40-2-zenitar-telezenitar-t52875,start,75.html

Yours does not but appears to be from the same serial batch. Can you comment on this? Thanks.

All new Helios 40-2 comes multicoated, but there is no "MC" letters on them. This picture is just a Photoshop fake from Russian photo forum Smile Even if the letters were there - they must be white colored, not red.

What happened to the $300 price I read about, that was mentioned from show goers?
They would sell a LOT more at a lower price.

I didn't mean a web shop, simply a company page with product information.

I only see they have a new page announce the resume production of three lenses(with google translate).

Any serious and honest company nowadays has a website with contact date and the like.

And at US$ 300,- (which was mentioned at several places) that lens would be a blockbuster!!

One might try to establish contact in English, 100% of their site is in Russian though.
