I’ve come across an interesting offer where I can get the following for just $90 bucks:
1.Yashica ML 28mm f2.8
2.Yashica 50mm f1.9
3.Yashica 135mm f2.8
4.Yashica to Canon EOS Adapter
Now let’s assume that the wear and tear on these lenses is minimal, i.e. there’s no lens separation and fungi, and very few scratches. Do you think it’s a good deal? Ok maybe it’s the wrong question.
What sort of problems can I face using these lenses? Two problems would be, I reckon, the lack of auto-focus and the inability of the camera to control the aperture. What else? Does the use of adaptor reduce the quality of the image? What effect does the adaptor usage have in general?
How would the Yashicas 50mm 1.9 compare against the Canon’s 50mm 1.8? Would there be a great difference in quality of images taken by these two, minor or no difference at all? Remember the Canon 50mm cost about $100 bucks while all these lenses combined are on offer for less than that.
How would the Yashica 135mm f2.8 compare with Canon 70-300mm f3.5-5.6 at 135?
Any other suggestions?
