Tak shot
Posted By: -=JoN=-, 03-04-2007, 10:02 PM

I never really got to use the Super Tak I got from Adam, at least not to it's full extent (i'm still just getting through the Sigma), but, in any case, I was sitting at home on Sat, recovering from surgery (minor) and was comparing it w/ a Sigma 70-210 AF
here's one shot I particularly liked from the Super Takumar



1/4000
f/3.5
ISO 200
Spot

adjusted levels in cs2

looks like a very very fun lens, and sharper than the sigma.
and silky smooth bokeh

the sigma shots were......

lets not say we wont get to see those now..

thoughts?

The colour is amazing. Transition from one to another. Great use of back lighting.

So, now that you got to test both lenses side by side, the big question. When will you sell the Sigma and for how much?
