I've owned both the Helios 40-2 85/1.5 and the Cyclop 85/1.5. The focus mechanism of the 40-2 is more nicely dampened than the Cyclop, but it is heavier as well, 880g versus 660g. Given that I only use it at f/1.5, I sold my 40-2.

You always have to come up with cool lenses and cooler images... ::)

  That looks like a lot of fun too

Thanks Paco. Sometimes you need to be lucky to find 'cool'  lenses ;)
