There’s a reason Super Takumar Lenses are as popular today as they were 60 years ago! Can anyone say optical excellence?
These lenses, specifically the the 50mm f1.4 though f2 and the 55mm f2 are nearly perfect. Not that I am in anyway negating any of the other super takumar lenses, because they are all superb, even by today’s standards. In fact most lenses manufactured today don’t even compare. These lenses are optically superior, super precise and built extremely tough!
The following photographs were captured using the above Super Takumar 55mm f2 m42 mount lens adapted to a canon 5D MarkII. Optically this lens is awesome. Aside from possessing super sharp, high contrast resolution. The 55mm f2, as well the entire line of Super Takumar’s and Super Multi-Coat Super Takumars focus like butter, the feeling of manually bringing a subject, or scene into focus is almost orgasmic!
You can buy the same lens I used to capture these photos here, at my Ebay store. If you’d like to purchase a different copy, feel free to search around. They are fairly easy to find.
Until next time, peace out!
