Chiyoko Tele Rokkor 11cm f/5.6 – The Molehill – Pt 2 – By Agata Urbaniak

The Mountain Nikkor covered in part 1 of this short series is a pretty unusual lens but didn’t quite fit the bill in terms of compact size. The quest for a pocketable telephoto lens continued, here’s part 2: the Chiyoko Tele Rokkor 11cm f/5.6

A while ago I wrote about the Chiyoko Super Rokkor 45mm f/2.8 which quickly became one of my favourite lenses. Minolta made a whole set of LTM lenses to go with their Minolta-35 Barnack clone rangefinder camera that they released in the late 40s. Discovering a new brand that made lenses for LTM opens up a whole new can of worms. Luckily for my wallet, based on online reviews the other Chiyokos didn’t hold much interest for me, except one.
