Please post Heliar 2.0/50mm images

Since the thread on Heliar 50mm images got reduced to a Heliar 3.5/5mm images thread only, I am now requesting images shot with Heliar 2.0/50mm lenses, to keep me occupied while mine is being inspected by Dutch customs...

IIRC there are two versions of the 2.0/50mm Heliar, one is collapsible and the other a limited series of 600 nickel lenses. Both are greatly welcomed in this thread!

The two versions of 50/2 are identical optically, Johan. It is just cosmetics.

My apologies, Heliar fans... I had split off a new thread from the f/3.5 original to hold 50mm f/2 discussion, as it had gotten a bit confusing which one folks were posting about. In the process, the new thread disappeared, and I've been trying to find out what happened to it. If I can resurrect it I'll merge it with this one.

I like the f/2 lens as well, partly in respect for it being a genuine Heliar optical arrangement, and indeed the fastest Heliar ever made! Like the C-Sonnar, in its own way, it's a "character" lens.

I have only two "like new" 50mm lenses, being the two Helar lenses. They compliment what I use in old 50mm lenses. I think that the 50/2 is not a character lens. I see it as a general purpose 50/2, just as if I were to use my Rigid Summicron. It is sharp and contrasty.


Johan: Why did you get such a lens?

Hi Raid, thank you. It's film, HP5 @ 400 in DD-X 1+4, 9 min @ 20c. I shoot mostly HP5 and use Ilford films, developers, and paper in the darkroom. I want to support Ilford's commitment to film. I printed this on Ilford's multigrade brilliant paper, though this is only a scan of the negative.

Disney Sea (a water based Disney World in Tokyo). Nickel Heliar 50mm f2.0 on a Bessa R3M. Neopan 400 in HC 110 (1:60) for 12 min.
The Heliar 50 is my favorite medium speed 50. The Planar 50f2 has a bit more "snap" to it - but the Heliar's more mellow character suits me better. Sharpness is very good, contrast medium and, yes, it does look so good too!

That bear is sure living the good life!

Thanks for the DOF comparison shots.


Tracking info says mine will finally be delivered today, but the Saturday parcel delivery moment has passed hours ago. That is suspicious...

See if this helps with the wait. Taken in the low light of the Covered Bazaar.

In the meantime, some more pictures





Just asking, is there any optical difference between the black and the nickel one?

Edit: found the answer on previous post..
