New old stuff for me...

Well grabbed some of my first pentax gear to shoot on my Sony E-mount cameras.


ASAHI Pentax Super Tak 55 F1.8
ASAHI Pentax Super Tak 135 F3.5
ASAHI Pentax Super Tak 200 F4


Anybody here shoot this glass? What do you consider the strengths of this glass to be?
Really looking forward to comparing these head to head against my Minolta MD glass of the same focal length and Fstop.

The only stupid question is the one not asked!

Check out the Takumar club for lots of discussion and examples:

Nope pretty sure I can generate stupid questions. A fact made abundantly clear to me shortly after I learned to speak.

Yeah, the 55/1.8 has produced abundant excellent images in the Tak club. I almost wish I hadn't bought the SMC-A 50/2.8 macro, but it's mighty good too. Oddly enough I limit out at owning two fifties, unlike many others here
