Pentamatic with 13.5cm Super Yashinon-R f/3.5 lens – 1960

20150108_143621

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!
