I have a Super Tak 50 1.4 that I very much like. I would like to get a Helios 44-2. I love the images that come that I have seen. My question is do all the Helios 44-2 share the same Super Tak mount; basically will my current adapter work with any Helios 44-2 or do I need to be looking for specific mount descriptions on ebay?

Just make sure it is M42 (which most of them are anyway).

Thanks

Just tested my 6D at infinity on the Super Tak 501.4 and it does stick! Not too bothered because I normally use it as a portrait lens

To be honest I am rarely impressed with M42 lenses at infinity anyway.  I don't feel like they resolve as well as modern lenses at that distance (perhaps due to the adapting process or just the nature of the optics).  At close to medium range, however, there are some fabulous options.

Hey guys, I just got my 6D and I have a 85mm Jupiter 9 M42 lens. I was reading about the adapters with AF confirm, but also they said not all of them compatible with the 6D? Can you guys help me out and tell me where to buy, and which one?

I'm not aware of any adapters with focus confirm chip not working with the 6D so long as it is a Canon mount.  I've used multiple ones off Ebay (usually around $10) in both M42 and K-Mount and haven't had any issues.
