Super-Takumar 55mm f1.8
« on: April 16, 2022, 16:54:47 »
I now got my 42mm adapter for my Z6, so I can take some pictures with my "new" lens.
I did the test on the Z6 @f1.8 and f4 and f5.6
Seems to cope well with shiny objects.
The bokeh is a swirling type.
Seems reasonable sharp even at f1.8.
Maybe this will be my "artistic" lens forward.
My sample of the Super-Takumar has the product code 37101, the late version.

Nice results, Bent.

I have the same  version (37101) with serial number 4037859.  A pretty good lens and fully usable at f/1.8

The lens seems to offer nicely rounded renditions.  The bokeh doesn't look all that swirly to me.  How many aperture blades does the lens have?
