    Description
    Yashica Yashinon DS 50mm f/2 M42 mount (original equipment on a Yashica TL Electro SLR ca. 1972). Good condition, some minor signs of wear, but glass is clean. No internal dust that I can see, and absolutely no fungus. Slightly yellowed coatings (this model not known to be radioactive). May be able to remove the yellowing with UV treatment, but the color cast is not extreme and gives a warm tone to photos. Focus action is butter smooth, aperture blades clean with snappy action. Surprisingly sharp lens, especially stopped down a bit, and works well at f/2. Comes with inexpensive adapter for M42 to m43 (has inner flange to depress auto-aperture pin). Original front cap, m43 rear cap on adapter. No box, papers, etc. (but I do have the TL Electro body in fair condition if interested). Asking $35 including PayPal fees and shipping.

    Curious what the bokeh is like on the Yashica? Got any sample pics?

    Of course! Not exactly examples of compositional excellence, but shows how it works in a few different circumstances...

    The Yashica is a nice lens to get your feet wet in adapted lenses!
