eBay Vintage Lens Buy: Yashica Yashinon-DS 50mm 1:1.4



The beautiful Yashinon DS 50mm 1:1.4. A big sharp lens!







The lens does have some signs of wear. It has a tear in the focus ring rubber and the aperture actuating pin does not work. This means the lens can only be used wide open. A nice big peice of glass with beautiful orange coating. The final purchase price was $40 for nice 50mm 1:1.4 lens. A lot cheaper then the Takumar 50mm 1:1.4!

Will be taking it into a camera shop here in NYC to get the aperture ring fixed so I can shoot photos and videos at f/1.4 and not at f/16. Hopefully, the repair does not cost more then the purchase price.
