Greets from a newbie Takumar user

I've been passed down a Spotmatic & handful of Super Takumars from my father - two 28mm f3.5 (1st gen early & 2nd gen late), a 50mm f1.4, and a 150mm f4. I had just started using an Olympus Pen and decided to get an adapter to use these lenses. I was immediately hooked by the color & clarity of the 50mm. It took a few days under a black light to clear the glass but it's been absolutely marvelous since. The Oly kit lens never gets used at this point; the Tak 50 is always on the body. I tried the 28mm for the first time the other day and was pretty happy with it as well.

28mm 3.5: Solo Flyer

50mm f1.4: Model shopping

Not in France

I hope to be using these lenses for a very long time.

Thank you. I was just looking to capture some sunrays so it was a nice surprise. There's really no post processing on that aside from minor crop & basic levels. The lens really did well.
