Here's Lookin' at Ya

Snowman and Woman -- NEX-5N & Chinon 55mm f1.4.

Took a walk and found this woman and the snowman staring at each other outside the Georgian House at the corner of University & Queen and I thought it was kind of funny.

Shot this picture with a Chinon (Tomioka) 55mm f1.4 lens.  At one time, I had so many variance of this lens with different names: Chinon, Mamiya Sekor, Petri, Cosina, Yashica, etc., all either made by Tomioka or based on the design of the Tomioka 55mm f1.4.  A little soft wide open, but sharpens up after f2.  By f2.8, it's extremely sharp.  Very nice lens indeed.  The Chinon version, if not marked (there is a version that says Chinon/Tomioka, I have had both versions) as Tomioka, can be had for a song.  If you need a fast lens for low light shooting, consider these old M42 mount goodies.
