    I’m not sure if Tomoika manufactured this particular lens because the Tomioka name isn’t written on the front. I understand that Tomioka manufactured lenses for Yashica, Cosina, Mamiya, and Ricoh for a number of years.

    I have a similar Chinon lens, but mine has the words “Tomoika Auto Chinon” written on the front. At f/1.4, it has considerably more sharpness and contrast than many fast lenses of its time.

    Il existe une version JAPAN AUTO CHINON MULTI-COATED , aucon doute c est du Tomioka.
