It's also just a bit coincidental that we had 2 people, on the same day, join and post about the dangers of those dreaded Takumars. (The other was banned as a spammer)

Is this why there is a faint green glow coming from my elderly Domke F2 every night?

Is that made in China? The reason may be a different one.

There's a little American flag on it, I think. It's really old. China probably wasn't even open for trade with the USA when this F2 was made.

i suggest anyone to let their lense to be checked by an expert. Don't trust the net blindly..
Do you care to share the address of your expert so that we can send our lenses to him/her for testing?

Seriously, my lense has been checked by a technician who usually checks radiations in hospital x-ray facilities and certifies them.

There should be at least one in every town i guess.. Or if you have a friend with a geiger counter, just try and see the radiation you get at 1 mt from the lense.
All the radiations over 10cm from the lense are beta and gamma

Cough ..... Cough ....... Bu . . .. . It's been 50 years and not a single soul has ever been harmed. Either someone is pulling yours or you are pulling ours.

But I digress. Feeding time is over.

This statement is really hard to confirm.. If you think that none of the owners of a tak ever got cancer, that's almost impossible by chance. Even if we knew about a tak owner with cancer, it would be difficult to say that a lens is the main cause..

For now, i stick with what an expert says about.. i'm not trolling at all though
