Congratulations, I just paid $130 for one for the Kiev - just the
beamsplitter, case and strap. It uses the outer bayonet of the camera so it
can only be used with the 50mm f2 Jupiter, the Helios is just too big to fit

On a slightly related topic, I discovered that the Helios won't fit my Kiev
3A as it won't go far enough into the lens mount. It's not just a bit too
tight - there's harsh metal-to-metal contact preventing it.
