55mm Lens Club - Pentax, Vivitar, Cosina, Porst - bring 'em all!

Was looking a while back for a 55mm lens club - there are numerous 55's out there, not all of them Pentax

Why not their own club?

Exquisite detail shown so far here. Well done.
You have your own lens club.

Always enjoyed my 55's - used to have both a Porst as well as a Revuenon but saw no need for two so I sold the Porst. Some samples of the Revuenon:

Great club and photos! Here are two lenses Ive enjoyed using along-side the Takumar 55s, not on your initial list (and no reason why given the number of different makes of 55mm).

Mamiya/Sekor 55/1.4



Fujinon 55/1.8

One of the few shots I took with my Auto Panorama 55 f/1.4. An old m42 lens, I think it was also sold as Porst (I found a picture of a Porst that lookd very much like it). I bought it last year for a few euros, never really used it until I remembered I had it a couple of weeks ago.
