Latest Review Posted SMC/Super-/Auto-Takumar 55mm F2
I have an Auto Tak and it is a favourite of mine. I love it for its small size, the black and white images it can produce and the overall vintage look it can give to the photos. It can lose contrast when shot towards brighter areas of a scene and even with focus peaking, I don't find that it is the easiest lens to nail focus with.
For the money, this is a lovely little lens. Given it was made somewhere in the late 50s, you can forgive it for not being quite as smooth as other Takumars are in their focus. The aperture ring movement isn't as positive and decisive as newer lenses from the 70s and 80s either. But that doesn't stop me from regularly enjoying this lens.
