Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 85 mm 1.8 M42 LBA shots

Well I already have a very good Auto-Takumar 85 mm 1.8, but this one came in my way and I couldn’t resist. What do you think? (About the lens)

Pict 1: f 1.8 1/60 sec ISO 200.
Pict 2: f 1.8 1/100 sec ISO 400. 25 mm extension tube.

Very interresting bokeh. Looks almost like paintings!

Jag ser att du är svensk, och med tanke på tranan, är du skaraborgare?

Thanks for posting these. I predict the price of the 85/1.8 will increase again

I have been reading the same from the Lens Review Database.
I keep reading the 1.8 is a bit soft wide open .. but sharpens up incredibly.
I'd love to own one though ... just to see what i can produce from it.
