that site is a spec of dust compared to Nigel's m-fortytwo for "takumar" specific material, Nigels site was esp helpful at difirentiating all the different model numbers and what not.
I hope Nigel brings the site back or allows someone else to host it. He started the project in 2004 and I submitted all 52 of my Takumar's data - including a 83mm f1.9 (m42).

Cheers,
Bob Rapp

Was out and about with the macro Takumar 50mm f4 preset today and came upon a cycad forest - Haven't posted anything here for a while so will add a few (please ignore the dust - have to clean that up):
New growth:

Here is another shot with my 85/1.9.

I lowered the overall brightness in pp to emphasize the flower - did I perhaps go too far?

I don't see a problem with blocking out parts of a photo to highlight the main focal point, as long as it's done in moderation.

RE: Arjay - Really like these shots, especially #2. The symmetry, shapes and patterns are well captured.

I have sent Nigel an e-mail about his database - I hope he hasn't changed e-mail addres...
I heard from Nigel. He let the domain expire by accident. If he can get the contents back he will resurrect the site.

My M42 adaptor from Fotodiox arrived this morning so I got to play with my just purchased Pentax Super-Takumar 50mm/1.4, which I got in great shape for $45.

I did a quick test with window light only on a cloudy Seattle day. Camera is a Canon 5D at ASA 100.

I shot three pics: wide open at 1.4, at 2.8 and 8.0. I did no curves or other adjustments. I resampled the three images down and flattened the document for the web. I used a slight amount of Unsharp Mask at 86% for the final flat file.

I like the look, its "mellower" than my Canons but with lots of sharp detail. Informal survey from my wife indicates that we both like the dreamy look of the first shot, wide open at 1.4. Look forward to trying this lens out with some portraits.

Just got my new 100mm F4 Macro 1:2 today. Picked up a genuine Pentax M42 adapter on the weekend. The adapter works great. Here is a sample picture. More pics have been put in the photo thread also.

Another with my SMC Takumar 55mm, bit too much unsharp mask, and it looks a little too much like a postcard

Every now and then I'll leave work at lunchtime for a while and walk out to the estuary to work on my manual focusing skills.

Here's one with my Takumar 200mm f/3.5:
