I hope toget a chance to take some shots with it this coming weekend. I took a couple at work and they are SHARP. Unfortunately the guys I took some pics of in the office are a little camera shy preferred that I not post them up for the world to see, so I will get some outside and general shots this weekend.

Hey Ira, Ihaven't heard any comments from you on the lens and I am worried you might be snowed in again..:G

Finally got a chance to get out and take some pictures with this lens. Took about an hour or so to get comfortable with the weight and manual focusing on such a big lens. Very happy with the speed and and the sharpness.

The planes were constantly flying directly overhead, so I got a couple of pics. The first one is a reduced image with a full size portion overlayed to show the amount of detail that this lens picked up.

This was just a simply clean shot, only processing on both of these images was a little bit of contrast and I mean a only little bit and reszing, no USM.

It was a cloudy day and this shot just happened to be in a clear part.

Very Impressive, that is quite a find. Given its age (after all it is a preset aperture screw mount) the only concern I would have is flare (use a lens hood, those lenses do not have modern coatings).

Great looking results from it as well.

Good

Robar

Most of the shots take the other day were at f4 or f5.6.
I have heaps more pics, but don't want to flood the forum with ALL my pics...:blah:


Ira

The lens ranges from f4 to f22 and has a retractable lens hood permanently attached. It is Anzac Day (25th April) today and I plan on gettingoout and taking lots of photos of the vets and parades and it look slike sunny weather, so I will see how the non-SMC glass works. :-D:-D:-D:-D:-D:-D :bye:

Old Takumar screw mount lenses (never confuse these with the later K-mount cheapo Takumars) were among the best lenses optically, rivaling Zeiss and Leica and generally surpassing others from the era. It is Pentax'slate adoption of a bayonet mount which caused them to fall out of favour with pros, not the quality of their lenses. What you have there is truly class glass, have fun with it.
