Hi there!

Newly joined member. Lurking here when I heard about Super Takumar lenses, and their legendary status.
Returned to more serious photography with a Sony mirrorless platform, following the theft of my entire Minolta film and Canon digital systems two years ago.

I just jumped on a 200mm f/4 SMC Takumar telephoto in M42 as my introduction. Looking forward to comparing it to my other 200mm lenses.
Hope to learn more about these lenses from the experienced folks here. I've seen some beautifully rendered images posted!

My best to you all!

I've registered to this forum just to ask WNG you a question. I found your review very usefull
I have sony a6000 camera and just ordered vivitar 200mm lens with m42 bayonet. What adapter do you use? I found only bad reviews about Fotga adapters and couldn't find any adapter with guaranted infinity. It's critical, cause I want to use it mainly for landscapes.
What adapter do you use?
Best regards
