Here's a quick grab of my rough coated Jack Russell Terrier, Sasha. A6500 using 55mm Auto Sears f/1.4 M-42 mount (Tomioka produced) lens wide open...

I like that blanket! I have one with cat's paws! ;)
That's such a superb lens. Wonderful rendering and excellent build quality. Love mine. They are getting rare as more people discover Tomioka. (The legacy company of today's Zeiss Japan.)

False advertising. I expected a dog with a camera. But an excellent shot nonetheless.

Yes, I do like this lens quite a bit. I have a Mamiya 55mm f/1.4 lens which supposedly also has been produced by Tomioka which I don;t consider the equal of the Auto Sears. I also have an Auto Sears 135mm f/2.8 lens which I think was made by Tokina. I haven't really checked it out yet but, the price was right. I got it for eleven bucks from Goodwill auctions...
This shot of Sasha's buddy, Robin, was also done with the 55mm f/1.4 Auto Sears lens on my A6500...
