Yashicas

I recently acquired a job lot of Yashica 28/2,8, 50/1,7 and 135/2,8. They seem virtually brand new. So far I have tried the first two (almost by accident as I happened to have them with me when I met a parade in a nearby town). I am very impressed with the build quality - like tanks - and I think the optical is more than decent. Will take time to learn them though:

28/2.8



50/1.7

Congrats, Patrick!
That 28mm seems to be quite sharp!. (Unlike my Cosinon...).

Jes.

Looks like a great set! I almost bought the 28mm at a local camera shop but I couldn't justify the purchase having a mir 10A at home.

I always wondered how the line of yashicons compare with the fujinon/vivitar/soligor lenses.

Congrats Patrick! You get a perfect set.

Actually there were three more even more threatening looking on a small veranda to the right of the single guy. But for composition I thought one on his own worked better Smile Smile

Are there any major impact on how these lenses handles with DSB (single) vs ML (multi coating)?


BTW hey all!

Hello and wellcome.

The difference might be as in the case of other multicoated vs. single coated lenses: better contrast for the first one and a higher resistance to flare. Of course, a role/s could play other things but I don't know exactly and this could vary from a lens to another.

Lens design also differs sometimes between ML and DSB lenses.

Welcome fotal. I am a newbie with these lenses and so I really cannot improve on the responses from others such as Orio. But I thought I would say welcome anyway Smile Smile

cheers all! Nice to feel welcomed.

Anyway just managed to lay my hands on a few MF-lenses (partly your fault guys! Shocked ) but waiting on adapters for my Canon body.
