Latest Review Posted Mamiya / Sekor 55mm F 1.4
I came across this lens in a thrift shop in a glass case setting face down. It was very dirty and looked in poor shape. I noted the 1.4 on the aperture ring and decided to take a look. I was pleasantly surprise to turn it over and see what it was! I had been looking to purchase one of these to compare with my Auto Sears 55mm 1.4, since they look optically identical. After a good cleaning, I was pleased with the overall condition of the glass. Other than a slight dent on the edge of the filter threads it now looks aged but clean. Took it out for a few photos and it didn't disappoint. Compared to my Auto Sears 55mm the lens has a slight yellow tent. This is probably due to thorium in the glass.

At any rate, this a very nice lens to have in anyone collection. if you look around you can pick them up cheap.
