Salvaged lenses- from Yashica Electro 35

I started dabbling in photography with an Electro 35 (and respooled B&W cine film).  The Color Yashinon 45/1.7 still is appealing. 

(Disclaimer:  No special skills were involved to grafting the lens to use on a cam.  Even I could do it!)

Google it.  There are a few German sites that show simpletons like me having done it (but more elegantly than me).  :)

Andrew, did not meant to be curt. If you have difficulties finding stuff, drop me a line.  There is atleast one eBay seller who sells complete lenses, ready to use and on taobao (Chinese) the e mount flange for it being sold.
