Got a new beach cruiser bicycle – not really made for the sand but it’s a perfect around the beach town we live in. No hills!
The Yashica Pentamatic Fanatic playing with his toys. It took a long while to chase down some of these Pentamatic thingys – still some items to find. Ah, the chase!
This Yashica Pentamatic ’35’ is mated with an early (SN 927) Super Yashinon-R 135mm f/3.5 lens – made for Yashica by Tomioka Optical.
The Pentamatic with its sharp lines and prominent pentaprism, looks modern and vintage at the same time. It’s like holding a piece of chiseled steel in your hands and just as heavy!
Yashica Pentamatic S with its no name clip-on light meter.
The Yashica Pentamatic S was available in 1961 and came with the Auto Yashinon f/1.8 5.5cm lens.
