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.

I had a chance to get on a little road trip and decided to bring strictly Takumar lenses, not use the 85, and use more of my neglected 28, 35, 135 and not-yet-used 150. This was shot with the 150, stopped down to about 8 or 11. (I don't really look, just turn a few clicks until I think I'm about there). It was very hazy due to a large fire about 500 km North. The haze definitely hinders IQ. Although this was during the day, around 11:30 am, I thought the scene lent itself for a warmer than daylight rendering.

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!

Not too much interest in the Takumar thread it seems - come on.. There's gotta be more T-love out there!

Here's two with the super-multi-coated Takumar 200mm/f4 from my collection. It hardly ever gets used, but when the light seems right, I take it off the shelf. Not sure about the apertures, but I'm pretty sure the portrait of the girl is wide open (see insets for details), while I seem to remember the cat shot was stopped down to 5.6
