Yashica/Contax -> E Mount adapter. Using legacy lenses on modern mirrorless cameras is one of the best ways to get amazing glass for great prices!

The SMC Pentax 55mm f/2. The colours produced by this lens are amazing!

Here’s something a little different. The Miranda Auto 50mm f/1.9. Made by the Miranda Camera Company between the 50’s and 70’s. A neat vintage lens!

Next up we have the Tokina RMC 28mm f/2.8. When adapted to my Sony A7, it has surprisingly great detail edge to edge wide open. Again, not the most popular lens, but a fun little 28mm to shoot with!

This Hanimex 28mm f/2.8 is not a very sought after lens, nor a very common one, but the optics are surprisingly good! It was released in many different mounts ranging from FD to Yashica/Contax (which this example is). Highly recommended if you’re just entering the awesome world of vintage lenses.

The Mamiya-Sekor E 50mm f/1.7 is a tack sharp lens! Comment below if you own/use Mamiya lenses.

A bit of an odd duck.... the Focal MC Auto Zoom 80-200mm f/4.5. A solid zoom lens with macro capabilities and a retractable lens hood. Not the most common zoom out there, but a solid contender!

Here we have a Yashica ML 50mm f/1.9. An all metal and glass compact 50mm with a Yashica/Contax mount. Nice and fast at 1.9 and produces crisp, clear pictures. This is on of my favourites and can be picked up for relatively little money!

The Minolta 50mm F2- a small, lightweight, inexpensive lens. It always seems to be in the shadow of similar FD lenses, but this little Minolta produces some amazing images!
