Ricoh Singlex TLS is a classic solid all-metal mechanical SLR made by Ricoh.
The TLS design is the screw-mount update to the camera that was the Nikkorex F, Ricoh Singlex (Nikon F-mount) and Sears SLII. TLS stands for Through Lens – Screw (mount) to denote the addition of TL metering (the Singlex/Nikkorex had a detatchable uncoupled CdS meter) and replacement of Nikon F-mount with screw-mount.
Impressive features: rugged construction, fast glass, awesome The Copal shutter.
The Yashica Yashinon-DS 50 mm f/1.7 is a fast and sharp prime lens for 35 mm SLR cameras with the M42 screw mount. This is the same model that Yashica manufactured for Zeiss for years so this lens is as good as Zeiss, no doubts.
Other features: CdS stop-down metering, ASA/speed dial is on the front (it was moved to the top in the Singlex II). I kind of like it there, just move your index finger down to turn it.
Apart from the obvious and what I’ve mentioned there isn’t much else to say about it – it’s just a nice, solid, dependable all-mechanical SLR. Attractive, too!
