    Bump! $150 + S/H and it's yours! The adapter kits go for $100+ on eBay, so this is a deal!

    Yeah, I'm really surprised someone hasn't picked it up yet! Add a new skin for about $20 and it would be a very cool addition to one's gear!

    Do you know if the Yashikor lens is a three or four element? From what I have read, Yashica did make a few four element Yashikor lenses.

    Thanks.

    The Yashikor are 3 elements and the Yashinon are 4 element I believe, I have the info saved somewhere just can not find it. I have the A model which I like a lot and wish I could afford this one, the 635 has been on my wish list for a long time.

This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense.

    There are many Yasikor lenses that are 4 element, Yashica switched some where in the middle of the production without renaming them. They later switched design slightly and renamed the lenses as Yashinons. I have owned Yashica D's with all three variants and after stopping down a couple of steps, are almost undistinguishable between them. I have also had the LM modle with a 4 element Yashikor and it was a good performer.

    You are probably right. I don't know where I got it (some box lot at an auction, most likely), but it worked in the 635! Lucky for me! I would have hated trying to find the Yashica spool just to complete the kit!

    Just goes to show how closely copied the Japanese cameras were to the original German ones.
