There are some weird and wonderful things on the internet and the latest thing to join this list is the MC HELIOS-44M-4 58mm 1:2 lens which has been combined with the original Nikon AF Nikkor 50mm 1:1.8D lens so you get swirly bokeh and a HELIOS lens with autofocus. 

The insides of the HELIOS now sit inside the Nikkor lens, leaving the electronics and autofocus intact and the HELIOS label has been attached to the outside of the Nikkor lens - still following?

Very easy peasy

Lovely pictures from it and the guy who combined it.


(Doesn't Leo_nid use a Nikon? He could find such a Helios prime lens in Russia)
