    A 58mm F2 Tilt shift Helios lens? Helios is a nice 58 mm lens, with tilt shift will be fantastic!

    there are 2 possibilities: or is a remake of the Zorki 5 camera released in 1958 or a remake ala petzval of the Brussels Grand Prix 1958 lens that is a rather specific version of the jupiter-8, or maybe both.... the only thing that I hope is that the price will be under 300 dollars!
