Sorry, this item has sold.

Classic Yashica Lens made by Tomioka

Yashica Auto Yashinon 5.5cm f/1.8 Lens
w/ Yashica Front Lens Cap

SN 517878
6 elements/4 groups
6 blade aperture
52mm filter ring

This is a super sharp and fast lens in
the Yashica family. Tomioka Optical
made Yashica's lenses (actually Yashica
acquired Tomioka).

The lens is in excellent condition with only
very minor signs of use. The optics are clean
and clear. Yes, there will be traces of dust
internally but they don't affect the final images.
Image #10 was taken with this lens using a
FotodioX M42 to FX adapter. The image is
stunning in clarity and contrast.

M42 - is a screw-in lens that will fit on
dozens of 35mm film cameras from a
variety of manufacturers. I still shoot
with this lens on both my Yashica J-5
and with my Fujifilm X-T2.

I have a few of these lenses in my collection
so I've decided to pass this polished aluminum
beauty to another photographer.

The focus is smooth and sharp, and the
aperture ring clicks nicely into place, and
the blades are oil free.

Smoke and pet-free home.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does your shop offer combined shipping?

Yes, just let us know and we'll work something out. No need to pay for shipping more than once.

Does your shop accept returns?

Yes, but with some exceptions. No returns on custom-made items. Part two - we will gladly accept a return within 14 days as long as it is returned to us in the same condition as when we sent it to you. Specifically, if an item is new and unused and in its original box and packaging it must be returned in an unused and unopened condition. Vintage and classic cameras, lenses, and certain pieces of vintage photogear carry no warranties or guarantees. By their very nature, older cameras are just that, old, and their electronics, levers, knobs, buttons, and dials can fail at any time. Let us know if you are returning something, maybe we can reach an agreement short of a full return. Part three - you will always pay for return shipping. Thanks

Will my purchase arrive well packaged?

Always! Carol and I take great care (and pride) in packaging your purchase. We are mindful of being "green" but often times green doesn't protect your package properly. We have been shipping items safely since 2003. We must say, however, that we are not responsible for mishandling by the carrier(s) or loss of an item. Most items and especially valuable items will always have insurance added.

How can I contact your shop?

We are on Etsy almost every day and the best way to get our attention is by starting an Etsy convo. We'll answer you quickly. We're generally in the shop until 11 PM EST.

Does your shop ever do custom orders?

Yes, we do. Just let us know what you want or are looking for and we'll see if we can make it happen.

Does your shop accept a best offer?

We think we have everything priced properly but we are here to make a sale and keep our customers happy. Let us know if you want to make an offer on something. I'm sure we will find a way to reach an accord.
