Q with SMC/Super-/Auto-Takumar 55mm F2 Lens

I've recently purchased the Pentax Q and wondered if anyone has experienced it with the
SMC/Super-/Auto-Takumar 55mm F2 lens

I have this lens at home and never used it but thought it might fit nicely with the Q.
I've not had a lot of experienced with manual lens' and have ordered a cheap m42 adaptor to use this lens on the Q,

Would it be possible to get nice results from this lens?

Based on the PF lens reviews it looks like a very nice lens. Should work great on the Q, it will get you the field of view of 275mm but the aperture and focus distance remains the same. You should paint the inside of the adapter flat black as the gloss black interior of the adapter will cause a flare on your images, kind of like a gray haze on your image under certain conditions.
