The only thing that I don't like about my tele tak is that I don't use telephotos much. You also need a fair amount of light to focus. But it's a pretty cool lens. And probably my only 200mm keeper once I've checked out the K85-210 and Promaster 70-200 that I have. I think they'll get kicked to the curb because I really need to reduce my collection a little. I just don't use them and in 1.5 yrs my stuff will be getting boxed up and stored for awhile.

Well I got the shipping confirmation numbers for both lenses. Looks like I might have them in time for my usual weekend hike/photography trip!. I think I'm going to take my nephew out for his first snow camping trip in the mountains. There isn't tons of snow right now, so I won't be able to make a snow shelter, but it will still be fun!

I'll be sure to post some photos here.

I received the Tele Taks tonight Both look brand new, not a scratch on them. I can't believe how small the Tele Takumar 200mm F5.6 Preset it. It is TINY. Can't wait to test these out on some wildlife!

Here are my Takumar Presets in order. Tele Takumar 200mm F5.6 Preset, Takumar 200mm F3.5 Preset and Tele Takumar 300mm F6.3 Preset.




And here they are with the rest of my Takumars, the Super Tak 35mm F3.5, Super Tak 50mm F1.4, and SMC Tak 55mm F1.8

Well, here are a few examples using the Tele-Takumar 300mm F6.3 Preset. These are nothing at all spectacular. I didn't get any wildlife photos yesturday since it was snowing/blizzard in the high country while out camping (made for an interesting night ).

These were just shot today out at a local park. Winds were extremely strong, so no birds were roosting, mostly flying around. All were shot wide open and weren't cropped.













So far, with very little use, I can see that I'm going to like this lens a lot! Colors are outstanding and the sharpness seems to be nearly up with my favorite lens, the Takumar 200mm F3.5 Preset. Hopefully next weekend's weather will cooperate and I'll get some close in wildlife photography with this lens.

Still have to test out the Tele-Takumar 200 F5.6 Preset, I'm sure I'm going to like it though. Maybe sometime this week I'll do a little test with the two 200's
