Latest Review Posted S-M-C/Super Takumar 35mm F2
I have three of these - an old and new Super-Takumar and a Super-Multi-Coated Takumar. The S-M-C version is better against flare, especially against the old model Super-Takumar with its 67mm front element. Yes, the old model is big and heavy. The late Super-Tak and the S-M-C Tak are quite compact, and all three are build solidly with typical Asahi Takumar aplomb.

None of them are particularly sharp at f/2, but by f/4 they sharpen up nicely. I haven't noticed tremendous CA from any of them. I would rate the bokeh as neutral, not as good as some I've seen from the Zeiss Flektogon, but not too bad either.
