Chinon Multi-Coated 55mm f1.4

Just bought a new m42 lens and think it might be a Tomioka. I had Auto Chinon 55mm f1.4 which is confirmed Tomioka lens. Anyone have comment on this very nice constructed lens.

It comes with Chinon CEII Memotron.

I've never used one, but back in the day they were considered quite capable. The only irritating thing about them is the focus ring spins opposite the Pentax equivalent. Can lead to a bit of confusion if you've grown comfortable with your Pentax lens.
