That grain definitely looks more Superia than Portra, at least to my untrained eye.
Yeah - agreed - I think I must've mislabled them.

Huh - scratch that. They're correct. It really was Portra 160 - i just dug out the negs.
I suppose it was a really drab and overcast day with lots of soft green and blue from the park trees and water, plus I was still operating on old slide film assumptions and probably underexposed a tad, which would explain the added grain.
Sure looks like Fuji color neg in those conditions though!

First roll back from my Yashicaflex A. Taking lens is a Yashimar 80/3.5, a triplet that may just be a rebranded a Tri-Lauser. Lens is soft towards the edges and has noticeable vignetting. The focusing screen is incredibly dim even after some TLC. Shutter seems like it might be a bit slow, but I'm not likely to be running slide film through it.

Looks plenty sharp to me! Although the bokeh in #3 is getting busy...

Look good to me. Then again, I don't spend much time looking for flaws if they don't make themselves obvious.

Mainly I went peeping with this roll as I like knowing what is good and bad about a given lens; helps me figure out what to actually use it for. (And then I just use it for the same thing I use all my other lenses for anyway. )

Number 3, according to my notes, was taken at f3.5. I'm going to have to try something at MFD with my next roll, just to see whether it's always pretty busy even wide-open or if it can get smoother.

According to everything I've read, i is most certainly a Tomioka made Tri-Lauser rebranded as Yashimar.
My Toyocaflex has a Tri-Lauser 80/3.5 and it's a very capable lens.
Your results look great.

Nothing wrong with those. The vignetting is really only noticeable in the third shot (wide open?), easily corrected in photoshop.

Put a roll of Kodak 400 ultramax through one of my Yashica Lynx 5000. I love the Lynx because it is fully manual and has an excellent lens. Here are some shots just back from the drugstore. They are of my driveway, street, garden bench and the river below.

Impressive. Never heard of the lynx. What is that purple-blossom tree in the 2nd shot?

Ran a roll of Portra 400 through the MX to keep it ticking over. Gees I like that M50/f1.4

Thank you, the tree is a Jacaranda. Pretoria in South Africa has miles of them lining the streets. As for the Yashica Lynx, this is what it looks like. I also have one with a 1.4 lens, the largest lens for a rangefinder.

Yashica made a series of Lynx fixed lens rangefinders dating from the early 1960s through the early 1970s. Their notable characteristics are a fast 45mm Yashinon lens, Copal SV leaf shutter to 1/1000s, coupled meter, and decent viewfinder with parallax-corrected frame lines. All were rather on the large size as rangefinders go. The earliest model, Lynx 1000, had a selenium meter while the later Lynx 5000 and 5000E had CDS meters. The Lynx 14 and 14E are distinguished by its Yashinon DX 45/1.4 lens. The "E" refers to use of an electronic over/under meter display as opposed to a moving needle. The Lynx series was replaced in the early 1970s by the more sophisticated Electro 35. They are nice cameras, though not quite as nice as contemporary Canon or Konica models.

How is it I know so much about these cameras? Well, my first "real" camera was a Lynx 1000 and I currently have both a Lynx 1000 and Lynx 5000 on my shelf. Sadly, neither is fully functional.

Here is a link to my Yashica Lynx album on Flickr:
