In my hunt for cheap used lenses to play with before really diving in to buying good glass, I grabbed a Takumar-F 70-200 1:4-5.6 lens off of eBay a couple of days ago. I've taken a few shots with it and it seems pretty nice to me. Although it weighs a ton for its size and it's pretty loud when focusing, I'll probably get some use out of it for a while.
Anyone else have any experience with this one?

Test shot. Overcast day, but I think it looks alright. I do like the bokeh.

it looks very useable to me
the images look sharp enough

i will admit to being a cheapskate when it comes to LBA
and often go around second hand shops looking for bargain lenses
(sometimes on cameras)

have fun and take heaps of pics

these look aok except for the noise.. i'd suggest a hood for it as being uncoated you may get flare when shooting toward or to the side of the sun..
