Older style metal construction lens in the classic Takumar or Rikenon style. Fit and finish not quite up to par with the other Ricoh-made lenses I have, this one is probably made by Cosina or some other Japanese OEM. I actually have two of these lenses, they're slightly different, and one has such stiff focus that it's not really usable because it will turn out of its mount before it focuses. However the smooth one is a very nice image maker. I do like it as a user, though I don't now if I'd pick it over a nice Flektogon or wide Yashinon in M42 mount.
- ?? I guess it would be a nice companion for a Sears TLS (a stretch I know)
