Takumar 150mm f2.5

I finally took out my Takumar 135mm f2.5 for a test drive yesterday and all I can say is Wow ! I was driving along yesterday when I saw some guys playing soccer so I made a U-turn and parked near to the field so I could take some pictures. I never thought I could focus fast enough for action sports, but actually it wasn't that bad. Out of about 20 shots I could say I had 10+ keepers. The thing about this lens is the contrast and colors. This lens is so contrasty, that I had to increase the exposure by about 1 EV so the pictures did not come out too dark. Even then, the contrast was not affected. The colors and sharpness are great too. I did absolutely zero PP after I downloaded the images.




*** I meant 135mm NOT 150mm***
