A good Helios is a good lens, but there were big differences between examples. I had a less successful one... It flared easily. 

This pussycat reminds me my late one, died 5 years ago and still very badly missing :/ Had the same colours...

That's right. There are good and bad Helios lenses.
I heard that these which have none russian markings are better, because they where sold on western markets and there is less chance for buying bad one. But I may be wrong ;).

It may be generally true. My one had no cyrillic markings but was a rather mediocre piece with strong reflections on lenses. Perhaps Hungary was Western enough to have different typeset, but Eastern enough to provide less successful pieces :D But even this statement is wrong because my father's piece has Russian marking on the front ring, and worked a bit better than mine. Complicated times, they were... :D
