Throwback Thursday – Reflections on a lens

Auto Yashinon 55mm f1.2 by Tomioka Optical – 1973

Monster glass from Tomioka. The lens has a super low serial number that puts it within the first few months of production. The camera is the Yashica TL Electro X – ITS made in April 1973.

This image first posted on my Flickr site in November 2019 and so far has been a very popular image amassing over 70 favorites. Image was taken with my Samsung Galaxy S8+ using natural light.
