Re: Cappuccino with 'special' macro Mamiya-Sekor 55 f/1.4

So, the title warrants a bit of an explanation.

I commented elsewhere on the exceptional quality of my copy of the Mamiya-Sekor 55mm f/1.4, which is fine, and this was noted when I disassembled it to check and clean if needed. The problem is that I seem to have screwed up the minimum/maximum focusing on it.

Well, at least this result does look very nice...

Picked up a copy of the lens myself Thursday, at a local sale; haven't had much time to play with it yet, given time and weather. Very much looking forward to the pics now!

A couple of online references called it a Tomioka lens; the build quality and mechanics feel very close to my Yashinon-DX 50/1.4, so that seems fairly credible to me. Do you have any further information?
