Wonderful pics! I've got a related lens - a Chinon 50mm f1.7 Macro of the reverse-taper barrel design. When trying to find some info about it, I came across this flickr page that talks about both the 50mm and the 55mm. It's apparently a convoluted history.

Yep I have got one - images scattered around here mainly in the bokeh thread.
Mine has lost its iris so I replaced it with a black rubber washer that comes out about f2.
Very flamboyant bokeh.

A 55mm lens that's both fast and provides close-focus sounds very useful indeed.
