This lens is made by Sankor of Japan. Makers
of high-quality lenses for many different brands

Classic screw mount lens
for all M42 camera bodies - Yashica, Pentax, Fujica
among many others.

***Only one other owner prior to myself. Part of the extensive
collection of well-known New Mexico writer and photographer
Ken Cobean who has had his work published in such magazines
as Time and Life in the 1950s and 1969s.

Please check out my detailed pictures.
The lens works perfectly, the glass has some
very minor dust specs inside otherwise it's
in fantastic condition given its age. No visible
fungus or mold. No noticeable cleaning marks
or scratches. It's simply stunning!

The lens barrel has developed a beautiful patina. It
may be worn but it's super clean. I take excellent
care of all my lenses and the original owner
did too. It was originally mounted on a Miranda
with an M44 mount. I changed it to M42.

The aperture blades work and as can be expected
there's some evidence of wear and some light oil
on the blades. Since this is a pre-set lens they
have no effect on the performance of the lens
and on the final images (see my test shots).

It mounts perfectly, focuses smoothly, and
is a joy to use. Please check out the test images
that I took using my M42-FX digital adapter
on my Fujifilm X-A10 mirrorless camera. Excellent
contrast, clarity, sharpness, and color.

***The aperture range is an impressive f/2.8 to f/22.

This is a highly desirable classic lens that produces
outstanding results on both film and digital cameras.

I mail daily.

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 everyday and the best way to get our attention is by starting an Etsy convo. We'll answer you quickly.

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.
