Thanks rhodopsin! I paid a little extra for the hood on the 200mm. It does have great colors and IQ, although it may be a bit long for me. We'll see. The Takumar 135 f/3.5 is just what I had hoped, with small size and preset aperture making it easy to use on a bellows. I did some rough tests in the yard against the SMC Tak 135 f/2.5 (v2), and while it is not quite as sharp at larger apertures, the older lens essentially equals the legend in color, contrast and bokeh. Was only going to hang on to one of them, but not so sure now... :-)
