My latest acquisition is a Yashinon 45mm f 1.4 in a Yashica Lynx 14E. The Yashica Lynx lenses have always impressed me.https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-film-slr-discussion/53503-cool-let...ml#post2404620

Wonderful examples everyone showing what these lesser-known lenses are capable of! HoBykoYan, it just goes to show a little fungus just doesn't matter all that much, excellent!

Here are a couple examples from the 50mm DS f/1.9 on my TL-Electro:

Wide open, almost at closest focusing distance on E200, Burlingame CA


Old US Capitol columns, National Arboretum, Washington, DC on Fuji Superia

I have a few Yashica lenses in M42 mount. I so far have only used the DX 50/1.7 that i use with an adapter on my K-5II. I also have the DS 50/1.7 and the DS-M 50/1.7, but have not yet been able to do the mod to be able to change aperture (neither has the auto/manual switch. I have got some great pics with the DX and it is a great to use (feels great, silky smooth focusing, solid build). In the next couple of weeks i will be doing the mod on the other two. I also just received today a ML50/1.9, a DSB 28/2.8, and a DSB 135/2.8 (along with a working FX-3 Super, $15 for all..!!!). However all are C/Y mount. I will also experiment with converting them manually. I am also going to post another thread in the SLR lens section of the forum to see if anyone has any experience with this adapter...
Amazon.com: Fotodiox PRO Lens Mount Adapter, Contax Yashica (C/Y) Mount Lens to Pentax K (PK) Mount DSLRS Cameras, CY-PK PRO: Camera & Photo
Notice that it promises infinity focus. That may be preferable to trying to do the mod myself (not that i doubt that i can do it, but i think the cost of buying the materials alone would exceed the cost of the adapter).

Hi, K200D + M42 adapter + extension tube no. 2 (13mm) + 50mm F2.0 Auto-Yashinon that I bought in 1962 with my Yashica Reflex, it was cheaper than a Pentax, hand held centre of a rose. I just like the colours, natural daylight.

New acquisition ...

Bonjour,

Picked it up cheap off of French eVILbay ... blades are slow to return, but I think that I am going to super-glue the pin so that it's full manual ... looking forward to posting an image or two later ... Salut, J
