A true plastic fantastic from Kyocera-Yashica. Released around 1986, this little gem is a modern classic. It gives much better-known (and much more expensive) point & shoots a run for the money.
Poor man’s T* Series with Zeiss lenses (I’m pretty sure these lenses are Zeiss without the coating).
Not much control over this camera – it was designed to take pictures without much fuss – and do it well.
It says Yashica lens but I’m sure it’s a Zeiss – why wouldn’t it? By the way, the 32mm f/3.5 lens is as fast as the other T* Series lenses – with the exception of the Kyocera T Scope (Japanese market T3) which is f/2.8
Good condition Yashica L AF’s are not common on online auction sites but nice ones still go for less than $40 or so. This nearly mint one went for $20!
Sharp contrasty lens – quick but not super quick AF but excellent auto exposure – perfect pics nearly every shot!
Images were taken on Fujicolor Superia color negative film. No post-production on any of these outside pics.
Headed our way from Japan!
