Here are 2 with the 55/1.8 Super Tak and an extension tube on the 5D.





Really bad wether today... and hastily edited. I will try to get out this week and do some street with the Tak's.

Nice shots Jason, especially 1st one.

Whoa! So you are saying your Oly 21 beats that...amazing!
Thanks lextalionis. Oly 21 is much wider and i like Zuiko color better so it get more use.

Takumars are great, but they have a real issue with infinity focus smacking the mirrors on 5D and 5DII (the 24, 28, 35 (3.5 and 2.0) and 50 F 1.4). I ended up scraping a 35mm F 3.5 Super Takumar (20 feet was a far as I could go without smacking the mirror) for a 35mm F 2.8 C/Y Distagon instead (no mirror issues). The (well linked) list is here:

http://www.panoramaplanet.de/comp/index.html#Contax

I use two Takumars ok on my 5DII (meaning no mirror clearance issues), the 17mm F 4.0 Fisheye, and the 300mm F 4.0 SMC Takumar. The 17mm will be scrapped for a Canon 15mm F 2.8 because the edges are really bad, even @ F8.0 on that body, and the 300MM F 4.0 SMC is CA riddled and tough to focus except when using live view-a 300mm F 4.0 EF will replace it one day as well

I do however, use a 50mm F 1.4 Super Takumar form time to time, just not at infinity focus

anscochrome,

Did you try modifying any K-mount Pentax lenses instead of using M42 (Takumar)?

No-my lens needs are pretty much set now, so I won't be doing any further experiments with Asahi M42 or K mount lenses.

Super Takumar 135/3.5 on the GH13 w/ET - But I have to say it again: At these web sizes all but the most dramatic bokeh renderings are quite meaningless. Thanks to Marcel VanEerd for including a 100% crops - I will as well at a later date. Most lenses of similar quality (and there are hundreds and hundreds!!!) will look about the same at this scale. I like these lenses a lot. Built for lasting several lifetimes and they feel really good in hand! Fairly sharp too!

Maybe....

Yes, it's Superia 400 with a B&W conversion + toning in Silver Efex Pro. A lot of the colour film I shoot ends up with a B&W conversion in post, particularly with the Takumars as they don't deliver as nice a colour rendering as my Minolta glass (Minolta colour is awesome, but the Takumars do better in B&W IMHO)

I meant - you seem to have posted this particular shot twice in this thread? If it is for a particular reason, I failed to notice it.

SMC 200mm f4 seems a nice lens. I love the little girl portrait and cat shots.

Has anyone tried using Taks on their HD DSLRS? Just curious what the results were.

I have the 28, 35, 135/2.5, 200/4. Love them all.

^ which version of the 135? M42? 6, or 8 blades? (If its the 8 blade version, it's no good, and I'll take if off your hands for peanuts. That's me - nice guy.)
