Hello from TN

Greetings to the group. I am very pleased to own a Super Takumar 50/1.4, as well as an Asahi SMC 50/2-M lens. As of yesterday, I am also the proud owner of an M42 version Auto-Chinon 35/2.8. I have been testing it this morning on my
Fuji XPro2, and I'm quite impressed with the sharpness of the lens. Love using 3rd party lenses on the Fuji.

Hello and welcome aboard the forums Those are nice lenses - glad to hear you're enjoying them on the Xpro2. We have quite a few other members using K-mount and M42 glass on non-Pentax cameras, so you're in good company

Don't blink while you are looking it up... it's tiny. It is a small antique mecca in that part of TN. Between K'ville and Chattanooga on I-75.

Well, I might just have to go visit the town. Would make a nice day trip!

Thought I would tell the group I added my two Pentax lenses to the lens serial number lists yesterday. I think my 50/1.4 Super Takumar must be a transitional lens, as it has 7 elements and the red mark to the left of the 4 on the depth of field scale, but no dot for f2, and also the M/A markings instead of man/auto.
