Howdy, APUG!
I've grown quite interested in the rather obscure lens brand, Komura. I know they may not be up there with the great popular lens brands, but just curious, does anyone have any experience using W-Komura M42 lenses, such as the W-Komura 35mm f/2.5 or any other W-Komura? What's your take on them?

Thanks. Looking forward to read your responses.

...vintage glass can have a 'unique' appeal. You'll probably not see another. Some readers will remember Komura for Bronica or maybe el-lenses. The lens you refer to reminds me of an early pre-set Tak. If the price is good why not?
