Hello Philippe,
used lots of them, the 55mm/2.8 macro is superb, the 200mm is excellent 
and the 50mm standards are ok too. My first SLR was a Yashica Electro-X,
for which I had the M42 lenses, later I used Yashica lenses on a first 
generation Contax RTS, now I'm using the 55 macro for any close ups I 
want on the Canon 20 D

Nearly all these flower pictures were taken with the Yashica.

A particularly good example is this one(which also shows how dusty my 
office gets)

So was the frog  Full(ish) 
frame  Centre crop

Don't hesitate to buy Yashica, IMO, they are among the best of the lower 
priced second-hand lenses.
