Macro shot comparison of SMC Super Macro Takumar 50 f/4 VS SMC Pentax M 50 f/1.7

a small camera shop gave away for free a close up lens for me while i was looking for a used 49mm filter.

here some small comparison of it, i put the close up lens on the front of my smc pentax-m50 f/1.7.

both shot at f/4

smc pentax m 50mm f/1.7 with close up lens

smc super macro takumar 50mm f/4

Typical edge softness with the close-up lens attached to the 50 f/1.7 but the magnification seems higher than the Takumar macro.
