Additional information:

 

The MC Helios 85-210 mm f/ 3.8 Macro  is a telephoto zoom lens with constant lens speed and manual focusing for Nikon F cameras.

It is most likely to have nothing in common with the Soviet trademark Gelios (Helios).

The MC Helios 85-210 mm f/ 3.8 Macro pros:

- multi-coating
- optical elements made in Japan - reliable build - rubber-coated rings
- rather good bokeh (it can be used as a telephoto portrait lens)
- no geometric distortion

- excellent macro performance (it is not recommended for shooting ants, but perfect enough for a may bug)

The  MC Helios 85-210 mm f/ 3.8 Macro cons:

- thin lines with chromatic aberrations, especially at the long end; accordingly, in winter and spring bare branches may spoil the picture.

The MC Helios 85-210mm f/3.8 Macro is an excellent macro lens. As a zoom lens it is ideal for black and white photography and for shooting in a good light when it is possible to stop down.
