Sorry, no time to say anything much today – been spending time dealing with a problem and have no time to write. Normal service (such as it is) will be resumed shortly.

  1. I am trying to find information about the Yashica auxiliary lenses for telephoto, wide-angle, and close-up. There’s not much easily searchable online, for example I have seen photos of “Yashikor Y212” wide/tele lenses but can’t find what cameras/lenses they were designed for. Would you mind sharing what is written around the rings on your auxiliary lenses? And are you aware of any literature on the lenses?


    1. Hi. I have two sets of the lenses. One of the sets is Yashica branded and says Yashica Taking Lens 30Ø Japan (and the same on the viewing lens, except it says “Viewing” instead of “Taking”).

      The other set I have is from Franke & Heidrich and says Rolleiparkeil 2 28.5Ø or Rolleinar 2 28.5Ø on the different lens elements.

      I don’t own any telephoto or wide-angle lenses for use with my Yashicamat. I don’t have any literature for the lenses, although there is this on the Butkus site:

      Hope this is of use to you.
