Makro Takumar, the new portrait lens?

Got the Super Macro Takumar (50 f4) for about 70 bucks and couldnt resist temptation.
Have been tested id out for some macros mostly, and took it along with me as the only lens on my shoulder.
Some macros I tested, but the sharpness of non!!

My youngest son was with me to the woods.

Just samples.

Both the leaf pics look beautiful (as does the lighting in the portrait), though IMHO that bokeh doesn't work that well in the portrait.

I agree the bokeh thing and maybe portraits could be better with some softness.
Despite that There is more to it than Macros.
And both rolor rendering and sharpness is way above avarage.
