This is a vintage 50mm Yashica manual focus prime lens with Contax/Yashica bayonet mount.
It is specifically a Yashica ML 50mm f2 which is in great condition. I have two of these for sale and this item is a little cheaper because I can just about see some very small fungus lines on the front element. The glass has no scratches, haze or dust though. The exterior is also in great condition with a smooth focus action. It is a lovely solid metal and glass lens weighing 165g.
It comes with a new generic front lens cap but the rear lens cap is of the era. This lens has the serial number A90043965.
I have used this lens on my Micro 4/3 camera and it is great. This is a very under-rated lens which produces wonderful photos with decent IQ and pretty bokeh. By using the correct adapters, you can use this lens on a multitude of modern cameras - often offering excellent images at the fraction of the price of many modern lenses.
This Yashica ML 50mm f2 lens will be sent well packed and promptly. My postage charges are very fair and I do not make money on shipping. On valuable items such as this I only offer certified/tracked (Certificado) postage to ensure that you receive the item purchased.
I am new to Etsy after having been a seller on eBay (and before that Yahoo Auctions) for many years with a 100% rating of well over 2000 sales. I specialise in cameras, camera lenses and filters and other camera gear, but I will also add other vintage items over time too. Thank you for looking :-)
