You know, maybe I'm misled by them looking like just your average third-party preset lens, because there's actually alot of lens designing going on there. Neat.

Particularly that 36mm f1.8, interesting air-spaced rear section on many of the 105mm - 135mm designs. I've seen a decent bit of variation exclusively around the 100mm mark for some reason (e.g. SMC Pentax-M 100mm F2.Cool, but Komura carries this split rear section all the way up to 200mm.

I will keep my eye out for brochures on them here....

Many thanks!

You're welcome, eggplant. I agree, there's a lot of interesting reading in the 1963 brochure.

Also in The Big Sankyo Kohki/Komura Thread, member D1N0 just recently posted a link to a PDF:
