>>3847382>Biotar doesn't have Helios swirling backgrounds, it's more controlled.
You do get a swirly background, not as much as the helios admittedly, but you do get some.
And the glass is so much better on the biotar that it's worth sacrificing some of the swirl bro. >Also the coatings are shit on the Helios but in the latter versions they are at least there.
It doesn't matter because biotar has the better glass.
Also I though that everyone wants the early 44-2 helios? >A Biotar costs sometimes 4 or 5 times, it's a matter of convenience.
The helios is sharp in the wrong places, biotar has much better micro contrast.
