Helios 44M-6. This good old Russian lens is so superb, that I hardly do any color correction. In other words, I have to adjust colors only if I have to create a more dramatic effect, or a vanilla black & white picture.

Doesn’t it look fabulous in black & white as well? If you own this lens, never sell it!
