So now we have to let go a THOUSAND bucks to get a new copy of a derivative (Helios 40-2) of a copy (Helios 44) of a derivative (Zeiss Biotar 58/2) of a 16mm cine lens designed in 1927 (Zeiss Biotar 1.5/50). And sold by the main historic rival of Zeiss, also.

A stealed design for three time the price of a wonderfull and modern design such as the Samyang 1.4/85... that's outrageous !
