a few Takumars

im going through yet another local move..:ugh: and I was boxing up lenses and bodies and browsing the forums, so I thought id take a quick photo. I actually have two more new in box lenses but they were already boxed up, and I was too lazy to get them out. so, yea this is what drains my bank account.... I let a new in box SV body get away from me a few days ago...


from left to right: S-M-C Macro 100/4, Super 35/3.5, Macro 50/4 (preset), Super 135/3.5


sorry for the crappy flash photo, it was a quick snap before they went into the box with the rest.

ok, im done showing off.

purty It's always fun getting old new items. Ever use those, or are they strictly for collection?

I find it amazing that you even have the boxes for old Takumars.

both really, they all get used. the 50/4 macro quite a lot. but they are purchased for collection as well. I don't plan on opening up a museum or anything but they are well cared for.

I have everything. the paperwork, the lens booklets, cases, hoods, case straps, etc. I cant speak for the 135, as I bought that from Woof, but all the others (including the two not pictured) had never been mounted, still in the plastic wrapping.

The preset model, second from right?

I haven't ended up using mine much. Manual focus and preset make it rather challenging to shoot any macros without a tripod and a stationary object. Haven't really tried it as a normal 50mm.

yep the preset. I actually use this lens a lot as a 'normal'. I don't find the preset aperture difficult for macro, or any shooting style for that matter, but then I don't always go to 1:1.

I have 5 "new" SMC Taks but 3 of the boxes didn't make it and a 4th looks a little moldy. I still hang onto the 4th box but wonder if it could ever affect the lens (not that I store the lens in it)...

There is nothing greater than a new Tak.....
