To celebrate my new website, dedicated to vintage lenses, I’m doing a biggest lens giveaway so far, giving away 6 lenses, so the chance of winning is better than ever

The lenses I’m giving away are Helios 58mm f/2 primes. They are great for low light and archiving a very nice, shallow depth of field and beautiful, dreamy flares.  I’ve tested these lenses and I was really impressed with the performance, in fact it’s currently one of my favourite budget lenses. You can check out the test videos on my youtube channel if you haven’t done it already.

2 of the lenses are Helios 44-2  which are a bit older models, but have a great step-less aperture adjustment. The other 4 lenses are 44M which are newer models and also are great lenses. Some of the lenses don’t have any lens caps, so will come as they are. A couple have slightly stiff focus rings, which is common for these lenses, but still work fine. I will post these anywhere in the world for free, so don’t let you location stop you from entering; previous winners included people from US, Italy Algeria and other countries!

To manage the whole giveaway I’m using a I’m a to help me track all the entries and make things clearer.

Entering is very simple as before, all you need to do is complete 1 of 8 steps below.  To qualify for 1 entree you only need to complete 1 point, but completing all more will more pointes, hence give you higher chance of winner. Please note, that the winner will NOT be chosen by the amount of point. The extra points will just give extra entries: 1 point = 1 entree, 2 points = 2 entries, 3 points + 3 entries, etc.

To earn yourself extra entries you can also tweet the message shown in the widget below once every day, just make sure that you do it through rafflecopter widget below. Any entries made in any other way will not be entered into competition, only the ones processed through rafflecopter.

Good luck to everyone entering and the winners will be announced in 2 weeks time, once the competition is over.

As you may know, I don’t currently have any sponsors and I fund all my giveaways myself. I giveaway what I can and as often as I can, but big giveaways like this are very costly especially that I volunteered to send these lenses anywhere in the world, which will cost quite a bit. If you like my giveaways and would like to help me fund my future giveaway, please consider donating anything that could go towards new prizes. If you can’t spare anything, you can still help: spread the word about by blogging, tweeting about it or sharing it on other social networks. All your help is greatly appreciated!
