This lens was the standard lens for the Sears TLS.  Since the Sears TLS was a rebranded Ricoh Singlex TLS the lens also may have been made by Ricoh although I have also seen that it may have been made by Tomioka or Cosina. I took some images with it wide-open this morning and decided to make a gallery for the results.

The hollyhocks are blooming early this year.
