newbie here

Hello fellow Pentaxian. Just got my kx a month ago. Now I'm buying some 2nd hand lenses. I found myself a Super Takumar 55mm f1.8. Its not really pleasing to the eyes cosmetically. I sometimes call it "Battle Damage" version of my takumar. I'm planning to paint it just to make it more presentable. Any suggestions or advice on this before I proceed to my plan?

Here are some pics of the Battle Damage version of my Takumar.

Hi tziboi as long as it gives you images you can live with, a lot of pentax users you'll find are in it for the lenses as they're usually exceptional.

Hi Clicker,

It gives great photos. I love it. I have no problem on the optics just only its appearance. I also consulted this to other site. They say leave it as it is. It's "EPIC" according to them. Hope it wont turn out to "EPIC FAIL".

Here she is attached to KX.
