To put the radiation from the 50/1.4 Takumar in better perspective:

While the 50/1.4 S-M-C Takumar is more radioative than bananas or brazil nuts, being indoors (where I live) about 18 inches away from the 50/1.4 will expose you to about as much gamma radiation as going outside, without the lens. Of course, background radiation levels differ a lot from place to place, both indoors and outdoors.
Great info. Thanks.

So I guess I shouldn't eat bananas outdoors anymore...
