Takumar 8-element sample
Lens: 8-element Takumar 50mm Camera: KP Photo Location: North Carolina Aperture: F1.4 
Posted By: 7.62lew, 08-22-2020, 08:23 PM

I was playing around with the Takumar 8-element (more samples on my flickr page). This is a Spotmatic with an early 7-element attached. The Spotmatic is well used and needs repair. I believe the 7-element lens was used little, if at all. Together they just look like they were machined from one solid piece of metal.

Yes, old equipment can be neat, even neater perhaps using old lenses with a new body. I plan to use my own 8-element lens with my Q-7, but only after Metabones gets around to shipping my focus-reducer.
