Additional information:


The Helios-94 50mm f/1.8 (Russian: Гелиос) is a fast normal prime lens for 35 mm Kiev-5 rangefinder bayonet cameras.

The lens' positive elements contain lanthanum crown glass, which has helped enhance optical performance as compared to the mass produced Jupiter-8 lens, and at the same time retaining an increased lens speed.  (Photography Optics by Vlasov D.S.)
