Takumar 1st. version 50/1.4: image experience?

Hi, I just got this lens and know a lot has been said about first versus second version (8 and 7 elements). Like how to know what you've got.

What I would like to know is about your image experience with this lens and then in particular when you have printed, or still do, b/w from film . . . I am interested in your observations about the character of this lens, if you find it very contrasty, or not. Things like that. Thanks!
