[SOLD] Tomioka 55mm F1.2 M42

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Tomioka 55 F1.2 M42

Asking Price
$90

Item Location
US NYC

Item Description
Tomioka Kogaku Auto Tominon 55 mm F 1.2 in Pentax M42 screw mount.
Same as Tomioka Revianon 55 F 1.2

This lens was famous for being the max aperture normal M42 lens. It was made for, and sold as a high end lens with Mamiya cameras.
All metal construction, smooth half click aperture ring, optical elements are not scratched, no oil on aperture blades.
One of the inner elements has mold web on it, you can see it in one of the cropped pictures taken against the light bulb.

I own this lens for over 10 years, bought it on Fleebay in 1999, was my first purchase as far as I remember

I occasionally use it and honestly I did not see this mold web growing , I always stored it with a few bags of silicagel in a dry place.

It is fun to play with, it is soft wide open at 1.2 with some soft glow effect, like soft focus lens, but gets sharp at 1.4-1.6 and then very sharp after F4.
It has very thin DOF wide open and a smooth bokeh (8 aperture blades). It is fun to use with live view on modern camera.

I included a few test pictures taken with this lens mounted on Canon 5D mark II

I guess we're all willing to take the risk for such a great lens. Who is the next in line?
