Yashica T2 Kyocera with Carl Zeiss 35mm f3.5 Tessar T*
Finally developed some test rolls. I've been buying more cameras than shooting lately but now the book is finished (first draft) I can take more images.
I bought this Yashica T2 for too much. $30. I suppose I could have gone hunting at the thrifts but I felt I should grab it. Of course I didn't notice the broken battery door. What's missing is a small piece of plastic catching the latch. Haven't figured out how to repair it.
I shot the above by having the battery door taped down (very dorky).
I enjoy the lens but find the need to use a "no flash" button annoying. Also, I think the minimum focusing distance around three feet. A tad too far. But, that's part of Tessar's lens design limitations.
