Yashinon 55mm f/1.8 VS. Pentax FA 50mm f/1.4 -- a controlled test

Here's the set up.

Both lenses set to f/2 -- their largest shared aperture, besides f/1.8, as that would be wide open one Yashinon.

Tripod set.

Shake reduction off.

Shutter operated by remote.

full pixel crop.

First 2 are lens only. last 2 are with 1.7x tele-converter.

Yashinon to Pentax

lens


w/ 1.7x



If you don't like the results. Buy your own Yashinon (Yashica) 5.5cm (55mm) f/1.8, they sell for less than 10 dollars on ebay -- usually with the camera attached (kit lens for circa '64)

So If I don't like the results I should buy?
What if I do like the results? I don't have anything to sell.

I'm glad to see someone else likes Yashica gear to, It's what I cut my teeth on and it is still working some 30 years later.

Some lighthearted ribbing.
