Snowy shots with Super Takumar 300
Lens: Super Takumar 300mm Camera: k5lls Photo Location: Seagrove, NC 
Posted By: mahanpots, 01-19-2018, 08:56 PM

I still enjoy taking pictures with this lens. My father bought it for me along with a Spotmatic and a 55 Super Takumar at a pawn shop in 1975.

Nice! I had the Super-Tak 300/4 and found it a significant step up from the garden-variety xx-300mm zooms in terms of sharpness, and of course it's well-built with great feel.

Focusing is a challenge, though. I have a 55-300 and enjoy taking pictures with it.

I do like the third one with the drips dropping down. Good catch!

I have one of those. It is missing auto/man switch, so I had to do a workaround. I quite like it. Nice speed for length and good feel in camera. Works nicely.
