Color-Yashinon DX 45mm f1.7 (X-mount)

normally found attached to an Electro 35 rangefinder camera - this lens has been converted to x-mount (I did not do the conversion; I bought it this way)







this conversion does give infinity focus and an MFD of about 30"

while it is not the sharpest lens, and that lengthy MFD does hinder its usability occasionally, it renders color and textures nicely

I owned that lens… on the rangefinder body. It was a fun combo.
