I need to stop looking in this thread ... I might just go an purchase a 55mm f/1.8 that is here in Aus .. it is only $35 I guess ... can't go wrong with that I guess. What's another Super Tak to add to the kit hey????

I just need a bigger bag just for the Taks along ... it's bigger than the rest of my "new" gear. I need to go and pick up my 35mm f/3.5 off Anne as well.

I need to sort out how I am going to add more to my Signature .. it says I can't add more to it now.

But these are TINY lenses. The 55 and 35/3.5 wil fit in your mouth, though you'll look like some mutated chipmunk...

Here is one from a SuperTakumar 55 2.0. I love these lenses! I have this one, the 35/3.5, and the 135/3.5. I almost never use my AF lenses any more.

Great stuff, not just the lenses, but the compositions. Some real photography going on here.

Mike, that 105 is blowing me away. Those shots are really, really nice. The B&W shot of the woman just looks perfectly exposed, the metal railing in the background reflects true-to-life, the 'metal' is reproduced perfectly. Nice stuff, truly.

So I have been doing a little research on the adapters trying to find a genuine one. I am hearing some not so good stuff about adapters ( third party ) getting stuck on the camera and such.
Also, something about having to open the aperture manually or only being able to use lenses wide open because of a disabled pin or something.

I guess my question is, what are the concerns when useing one of these lenses? I was thinking I would be able to use it technically like a K or M series lens. Is that ture?

Thanks
