Yashica J

Traduction de Manuel M

This variant is later with the model “J” which appears here. It is the last generation of the model.
It has also a lens F 2.8 /45mm, but that one is not engraved any more Yashica Yashinon, but simply YASHINON. Moreover, its wide frontal ring is from now black.

The model J has a basis of Lynx 1000.

With its modest Copal and its F 2.8 of 45mm - 4 elements in 3 groups - it begins again most features of the YK which it replaces, in a way.

Like its grandparent, in spite of a simplified technique, it is well manufactured and had very a good reputation of reliability.

The specimen present here bears the n°: J3121119
