Yaschicor 200 3.5


I randomly but a 10 $ bid on a Yaschicor 200/3.5, i still havenīt recieved it yet.
I Wonder if anybody knows som good inforamtin about the yashica lenses, and preferrebly this one.
Searching some lists and forums and often the Yashicor 200/f4 is mentioned but never the 3.5 version.

In pictures if think its look like the the Vivitar komine version, and perhaps its the same manuafacturer???

I'm looking at some pictures of the Yashikor, but I'm not seeing any similarities to my Komine.

I do know most Yashica lenses were made by Tomioka.

I am not sure, but IIRC, Yashikor was Yashica's line for lenses with simpler design. Yashinon were considered to better. Most Yashica glass was made by Tomioka, the same people who made the M42 Rikenons.
