Latest Review Posted SMC Takumar 15mm F3.5
Well first off let me just say how I do not use takumar glass for photography. I fell in love with them when I started doing Timelapses. Well over the years I use them for Stereoscopics, timelapse, filming, video, etc. I love these lenses! I've shot them side by side with cinema glass ten times more expensive and they can hold their own. I own about 60 lenses and my collection is ever growing. However, out of those lenses only a handful I turn to when I need the great quality I am looking for or my clients expect. The 15mm 3.5 S-M-C is the lens that holds up the best against other brands like Super speeds, Cookes etc. Anyways Its focus throw is nice for a super wide angle, the color is my Favorite. When applying a rec 709 its almost too colorful because something about the old coatings just make the color pop and give it a nice 3D effect.

I have the same lens everyone one does, I don't know if that 2nd model even exists because I've never seen it. I actually have two of these lenses. The first one I got had the smallest of small scratches on the front element and I am a perfectionist so I got another one that was in great condition. There is some dust inside the front element and I could not figure out how to get those two elements apart to fix. Maybe ill try to send it off somewhere. Anyways enough talking here is a video I shot with it and the proof is in that.
