You must also have a great mind too! LOL

that 85mm f/1.8is probably the best Takumar I have, it never fails me with amazing images!
I deleted my post because I thought it wasn’t relevant, but you have memorialized it. Never believing one is enough, I also have the Auto-Takumar 85/1.8 (different formula) and the SMC Pentax (K) 1:1.8 85mm (same formula). They’re all stellar lenses but I actually prefer the rendering of the Auto-Tak.

I must say that I am beyond impressed with the K1. I've only had it for about a week now and I can say with confidence that it is easily blowing the socks off my other camera's....(and I don't even have a modern lens for it yet!)

This was shot using a 40yr old SMC Pentax 100mm Macro f/4 Lens....

Bear in mind the K100/4 Macro is a very good lens. The K-1 is a fabulous camera but so many of the legacy lenses are so good on it that sometimes I think Pentax designed the camera for old lens collectors as much as for modern lens buyers.

I actually bought it strictly for my Vintage Pentax/Takumar Lens collection. The sensor surely seems VERY capable for these old gems
