        I did check the lens by removing it from the body, the front big glass is just for protection, the actual lens is hiding behind the front glass. like the one with the cellphone.

          I saw that and though very much the same thing. I realized that there was no way that was an actual optical element given the sensor size.

    So just another brand name to hell. I’ll wait for a Contax comeback :p

    • Mistral75

      The Contax trademark still belongs to Carl Zeiss AG :).

        There is still hope 🙂

    Obviously Yashica of Japan actually never existed, and all those cameras are just a result of collective hypnosis … 🙂
    Its funny what kind of rubbish people can pull up on internet these days …

  • Would’ve love if someone would bring back a compact stills cam for film. Like the Contax T2/T3, Fujifilm Klasse W/S, Ricoh GR1v, etc. Basically the only affordable ones are the Olympus Mju line-up and the Yashicas that were actually using Contax-like Zeiss lenses, but in a more bulky and plasticky cheaper body, rather than the durable premium one by Contax. You’d think cameras like these would be super simple to make (compared to a digital one, with sensor, liveview etc), yet… noone is doing it.

    Note that 100 Enterprises International Group Co. Ltd., the Hong Kong located exclusive global agent/distributor for the Yashica trademark, is also the company that has applied for the digiFilm trademark and figurative mark.
