Pros: Construction, fluidity rings, blurred, sharpness from 2.8

Cons: I can't find any, you have to know how to use it being full manual

Opinion: I was lucky enough to find it at home together with an old yashica frI of my dad, and when the "vintage" are back in vogue I bought a 15 € adapter and I put it on, experimenting a little with its qualities with my canon 70D mainly on close-up set of orchid flowers etc. obviously it is a full manual lens so you have to take a little hand with the adjustments especially with the light meter and at the beginning it is not easy, but once I made the eye I immediately appreciated the qualities, especially in the close up genre for the precision of the MF ring, the blurred that vabè and comparable being a 50mm with similar aperture to which I was accustomed and to the fidelity of the images that I will talk later, in fact having a Canon ef 50mm f1.8 stm I wanted to compare them from TA up to F11, (f2.8-f4-f5.6-f8-f11) well, right away the canon returns very saturated colors compared to the yashica that behaves much softer in colors, in addition to this difference to TA both are comparable as IQ and detail on the point of MF but from 2.8 up the old man shows the teeth returning more detail especially from 5.6 to f8 compared to the canon that shows more color but loses in the details kneading them a little as if hiding them from the strong saturation .. what to say from that moment in canon remains at home while he always travels with me, especially when I make targeted outings for that genre, a valid 50tino that still has a lot to say, if you find it in good condition take it into consideration because it will give you a lot of satisfaction

Pros: sharpening even at 1.7, metal construction

Cons: didn't have any

Opinion: it's a fantastic lens and I use it on fuji xe2. I think it's sharper than a native fuji lens and has a fantastic vintage rendering. It has the same optical scheme as the zeiss planar so obviously the yield is of a high level. it's also sharp at f 1.7 so for portraits it's the best you can have. The construction is therefore made of high-quality metal with diaphragm ring of course that shoots like a jewel. a fear lens for mirrorless and also on film reflex since I have a yashica fx3super. with this do the go to the next level! over the toppp

Pros: Price.

Cons: Too vintage.

Opinion: I agree with Leo45. I had this lens when I photographed in analogue with the Yashica FX-D quartz and then with the Contax 139 quartz on which I had before the Planar 50mm f 1.7 and then the brighter one F 1.4. I can therefore bring back my experience in relation to the analogue field. The 50 mm Yashica ML F 1.7 had almost similar performance to the Planar Zeiss 50 mm. 1.7 T *, but I emphasize "almost". At the intermediate diaphragms (between 5.6 and 11 to understand) had an almost similar yield so that on photos printed from negative films I was difficult to find big differences... but with the Diacolors Kodachrome 25 and 64 ASA (then there were ASA and not yet the Iso) The differences came out all and the 50 mm Yashica, although behaving quite well, gave a lot of the step to the homolog Zeiss: Distortions and vignetting were more obvious while microcontrast, sharpness and color rendition significantly lower if Compared to the same shots made with the Zeiss lens, especially at the extreme diaphragms (for fans of photographic technicalities were published at the time MTF curves and other measurements and laboratory tests carried out on the objectives and I remember that even from these comparisons the Zeiss lens came out with the laurel wreath). Once purchased the Planar F 1.4, then, I yielded the other two lenses because the latter I found it even more performant and, in my opinion, still remains the best 50 mm. Analogue of Zeiss home. The only attempt to use Contax/Zeiss optics on digital cameras I did on the Canon 450d using a special adapter, but the results were disappointing, even with the Planar 50 F 1.4. Today, perhaps things have changed and it seems that these old goals can live a second life on some of the latest digital cameras even though I happen to see and hear conflicting opinions and experiences in this regard.

Pros: Price, construction not Excellsa but luxury in comparison to the objectives AF all plastic, frames as a 75/80 in APS-C and can serve for portrait

Cons: Manual focus, anti-reflective treatment of another era that can become critical in digital, yield of the boken and good relief but a bit trivial.

Opinion: Unfortunately I have to contradict Ianni74 the Zeiss planar 50mm f. 1.7 has nothing to do with the Yashica ML, already the planar has an optical diagram of 7 lenses in 6 groups optimized for all the distances of inlaid egg and not like the Yashica 6/5 , the anti-glare treatment T * is miraculous, etc... rightly in the years 90 I bought about 3 Yashica MX Super 2000 Col 50 F. 1.7 Yashica and I was very happy with it, but in the end I bought the Zeiss planar and I must say it was another world, to such an extent that if you found it us ATO the compreri immediately is one of the best goals that I have ever tried together with the Leitz Summicron 50mm...ma we return to the Yashica ML, frankly does not have great flaws but not even great merits, very little distortion, an easy vignetting and good sharpness to intermediate diaphragms; The colors are quite faithful but nothing to do with the Zeiss, idem for the resolution, contrast and relief... In short, was an honest optics, practically donated with the camera body but frankly does not offer grandché in digitale...al limit the old model Quoted from Kaveri63 is more interesting, better built, vintage yield but excellent sharpness, etc...

Pros: sharpness, price, on an APSC becomes a portrait lens.

Cons: Lack of Contrast.

Opinion: A good lens; Certainly the comparison with modern optics does not stand because it lacks contrast but with a bit of post production Improves. Its strong point is certainly the sharpness: it is super sharp even at full aperture. On an aps-c lends itself to being a good portrait lens. Recommended for beginners and those with a very limited budget. Little expense so much surrender.
