Can someone please help identify this Super Takumar 55mm f2?

There were at least 4 variants of the Super-Takumar 55/2. The early first version had the reversed aperture ring, the late first version had the standard aperture ring with F2 on the right. 1962 would be right for the early model 1.






QuoteQuote:

2: Super-Takumar 55mm F2 (model 1 early), aperture ring has fine ribs F2 to the left
3: Super-Takumar 55mm F2 (model 1 late), aperture ring has fine ribs and F2 to the right
4: Super-Takumar 55mm F2 (model 2 early), aperture ring has coarse ribs
5: Super-Takumar 55mm F2 (model 2 late), aperture ring has coarse ribs, lens supports open aperture metering

The other day in a Facebook group there was a post asserting PentaxForums is a nasty place. One of the commenters said PentaxForums was as bad as DPReview...

My reply was that until a user builds an entire web forum because they were banned from PentaxForums it is not as bad as DPReview...

But it's hard to walk out the door without a big lens if what I want to shoot is 3-4 inch long birds. And I haven't been able to walk out my door in months anyway :(

Most of the time the only lens I have with me besides the 150-450 is the 18-135. Sometimes it's just the 18-135 and 55-300.

Taking a look at the products VAIO offers in the US, two laptops (12" & 14") that compete directly against the MacBook Air and 13 inch MacBook Pro, I think m4/3 cameras and lenses are dead. I expect they bought the Zuiko name to release high end L mount lenses like the F2 zooms they made for 4/3 and maybe licensing some Olympus technology to L mount partners.

I've seen claims that JIP didn't buy Olympus to make cameras, just for the patent portfolio.

Who said whatever company emerges will be dropping m4/3? They are kind of stuck with it unless they want to develop an entirely new line of lenses using L mount like Panasonic...

Hot shoe or cold shoe doesn't matter as long as the camera has a flash terminal.
