Q with M1.7 and Heilos and Super Tak 135

I seemed to get the best sharpness out of the lens stopped down to 5.6. No good subject sorry them squirrels are fast only got like 2 shots of him.
1st shot is Pentax M 50mm 1.7 @5.6
2nd is Helios 44k @ 5.6
3rd is Super Tak 135mm 3.5 @ 5.6
I guess I should also say they where taken with free hand me down tripod with 2sec timer on a cloudy day so shutter times could have been better

Great photo weather we are having in Mi. I find I need to shoot my super tak adapted lenses -0.7 stops under exposed to get the best image. Have fun

Looking good, Classico.

The Helios looks like it lacks a bit of contrast vs the other two, and the output from the 135 is excellent.

Also, - your squirrels are fat - jus sayin
