Yashica DX 50mm f/1.4

Has anyone ever used this lens? Some say it's just as good as the SMC Takumar, other's say it's not as contrasty...

Also, will I have any issues mounting this onto a Canon DSLR? (like infinity focus problems)

And is 70$ for this lens a good deal??

I have some info for you here.

The different flavors of "DX" lenses
My Photography Assistant - Yashinon-DX 50mm f/1.4
yashinon dx 50 m 1.4 very soft at 1.4, 2, . with sam nx11
yashinon dx 1:1.4 50 mm

Price is nice, but not a real bargain.
Smc Tak 50/1.4 can still have for 100-150usd occasionally.

There is also this. You might prefer to get a Pentax K or M 50mm f1.4 instead. Wait, on second thought, if you use a Canon, leave K-mount lenses to us
