This is my favorite lens, the Asahi Super Takumar 55 f1.8! I find it fiddly to use on a DSLR though

I'm plenty of FD bodies (two F-1N, one F-1n, a FTbn, an A-1, a T90) but I always been fascinated by these old AF, they feel so 1985...like something taken out from Robotech saga.

It's quite noisy and the AF sounds exactly like the AF cameras on the helmets of the Colonial Marines of Aliens.

That's odd! I cross posted from Instagram. Does that not work?

and I was looking forward to a third picture of the tank crushing the old Canon...................

Just kidding, well sort of. The Canon AF looks boxy like the first Pentax AF series the SF.

Actually, there is a photo. If you right click on the broken link into a new tab, the url works. The url is apparently https://www.instagram.com/p/BEbBvvetc1F/ , and it doesn't work in a forum [ img ] tag. They have an "embed code", though, but it's full of javascript. They are apparently trying to stop folks from stealing the photos off of instagram. The source for the photo is also a javascript class. They cannot, however, stop a screen grab. Here it is:

What you posted was the link to the page and not the image -> My Asahi super takumar 55mm f/1.8

To embed the image, you will have to inspect the page source and find the instagram image link -> https://instagram.fsnc1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/t51.2885-15/e35/12677241_10882930778...21030213_n.jpg and that one you can embed inline with your text as shown below.

You are right! I had to "view source" in order to find the img tag, but there was.

They also cannot stop a persistent user with access to the page image info (gotta love Firefox...no need to wade through the page source).

F-1 is a beast!!! I doubt that tank would even scratch it Most solid camera body I've ever handled. Looks REAL nice when the black paintwork starts to brass too. Sounds like a nailgun though.

T80 on the otherhand kinda reminds me of this though

Yes the first F-1 (actually mine is a 1977 F-1n) is a big, solid, and smooooth camera, probably one of the smoothest I have, it feels more "quality" than anything else, perhaps even more than a Leica M. The problem is that it's enormous, I usually walk for long times looking for subjects and it's a pain, especially with the 55mm f1.2, together they are about 1.5 kg (I weighted them). They are very underrated, I bought mine in pristine conditions for $70 or something like that.

This is my "exploded" F-1n:



here with the daughter:



here you can appreciate the size of the 55mm in my hand:



Yes, it's ludicrously big.

This is my T90 with 35-105 aspherical zoom:



And some paperwork...using that camera gives me an headache.

Also out in 1985.

HUGE range of accessories for the F-1 too. VERY nice camera but, jeez its no stealth street shooter. LOUD shutter (well mine was) Got a waist finder with mine as well as the split. Pure quality. Not like the cheap plastic crap they churn out now. Sold it for a handsome profit.
(I do like Canon though, there I said it )

Mine is the quietest SLR I have, even quieter than the LX. The mirror is marvelously damped (like the Ftb as well, they have it mounted on two springs).

The T80 is a scary noisy thing with a sort of alarm beep when it nails focus...which is rare.
