    Anyone used a wide or telephoto Yashica TLR auxiliary lens set? (Fits onto bayonet mount like a filter). I never have - I would assume definition at large apertures is not too hot, but is it possible to get a worthwhile result even stopped down? All info gratefully received!

    Regards,

    I've used them on my LM, and couldn't get a sharp shot out of it with them on.

    The telephoto auxiliary lenses are so-so, and the closeup lenses (Rolleinars) are fine.
