I shot these wide open which isn't the real strength of this lens. Probably better at 5.6 or 8 but I was impressed nonetheless.





These are the kinds of pictures I like.

Nice out of focus rendering in those shots.

It's a pity I can only give this post one like - I would like to give it ten. Great work!

Auto-Takumar 35 2.3

Seeing the posts by Niceshot reminded me to give this favourite a run around the yard again. Always interesting results.







Really not too sure about the day lily portrait. Perhaps too abstract but I find it compelling.

I was especially impressed with the orange flowers. Nice shots!

perfect focus, very well done Wolfgang, for it was your only, fast and surprise take.
haha, forum legend and vintage lens expert.. I'd rather say enthusiastic dilettante.
it has been a while since I posted here. Gear being small and light, as are my Pentax *istDs and K-x, always has been a priority for me. That had made me, once they came to the market, switch to mirrorless cams with small and light, also old manual rangefinder and / or halframe lenses.

a few old takes with my S-M-C Takumar f1.4/50 on Pentax *istDs from Nepal 2009, might have shown one or the other, recently re-edited:

still keep my Taks and still like my Taks very much, but haven't used them much on my mirrorless cams.
