Fastest normal lens for M42. Made by Tomioka Japan for Yashica. Was made as a Revuenon, too.

    Mechanically really very pleasant lens, but optically quite unimpressive. Lack of contrast under f/2.8, lack of sharpness under f/4. At f/4 comparable to DS-M Yashinon 50/1.4 at f/2. At f/5.6 comparable to SMC Takumar 50/1.4 at f/2. Significant color abberation through entire aperture range. Very nice bokeh.
