Quite rare, silver version of Yashinon 50/1.4, M42 mount:

I love how great it looks and works. And image quality is as expected. Sony NEX-6, no post-processing besides resizing.
I've compared it against kit zoom Sony SEL1650 (first photo, 50 mm):

Yashinon wide open, same spot:

And some more with Yashinon, still wide open:

I really agree about image quality, really dreamy. Mine is an assemblage of two damaged ones, I used a sane front to repair my first whose front lens was scratched.

It is radioactive, though, so I keep it encased in pliable lead sheets, despite reassuring opinions I keep on the safe side....

I used it for film photography and it made a stunning portrait lens

Very nice. I have the 50mm f2 and think something must be wrong with it. I haven't liked the images I've got from it so far.
