takumar 55 2.2 vs 135 2.5 bokeh comparison
Lens: takumar 135 2.5, 55 2.2 Camera: Pentax Ks-2 Photo Location: New Orleans ISO: 100 Aperture: F2.4

(Forgot to change the genre, sorry) have been testing my takumar 55mm 2.2 rendering of background out seeing what is does with different backgrounds. I figured I would take my 135mm 2.5 out for comparison. They render so differently to both have a niche in the bag o tricks.

first 2 are the 135mm wide open. The others are the 55mm wide open or maybe stopped down to f4 if that.

I love the Pentax 135mm f/2.5, I used it for a number of years. I think the bokeh is smoother and sort of isolates the subject more, but the bokeh of the 55mm is more interesting in many ways.

I think the final shot works best, but they're all wonderful.
