It's somewhat rare, I've seen it on the marketplace twice in about 8 months. Some people like it more than the 85/2 and the 85/1.8 because of its rendering and highlights. for the reviews on it.

It's a Super Takumar, so it's all manual, and M42, so mounted on a K-mount body with the proper adapter, it does not have auto aperture (the viewfinder darkens as you stop the lens down). On a m42 body (like Spotmatic), there's an auto/manual switch, and the lens can do auto aperture with a pin at the back.

I agree, the bokeh is smashing on it.
