I'll take #6 in this last set (second set was too close to call). It has a little more contrast/detail in the petals. Bokeh is very similar.

So sorry, that I did not get back earlier as I was distracted a bit by other stuff (non-forum)

I must say that I've learned a lot from this.
How some of you guys can perceive the minor details is amazing and something I do think I've learned a bit on. (Thanks )
It also individual preference at the end of it (no right or wrong).
Though the guys who liked the cheaper lens has the advantage of saving more cash in the pocket

The results have been interesting too.
It actually hung in the balance (A tie! ) until bibz put in his choices in post #33 and swung it in favor to lens #1.

Final results
Set 1
#1 - 5 counts
#2 - 3 counts
Either - 2 counts

Set 2
#3 - 3 counts
#4 - 2 counts
Either - 0 counts

Set 3
#5 - 3 counts
#6 - 2 counts
Either - 0 counts

#1,3,5 - Rollei HFT T* 50/1.8 (converted to M42 mount)
#2,4,6 - Super Takumar 55/1.8

Thanks everyone for participating/playing
really valuable inputs from everyone.
