Topic: Asahi Super-Takumar 105mm f2.8

I have been trying to find a fair priced hexanon 85/1.8 for a few weeks without any joy. So i thought i would have a dig in my box of "junk" lenses. I bought this about 6 months ago in a junk shop, gave it a quick try and thought it was awful. Its a bit "loved", but every lens deserves a 2nd chance.
It isnt the sharpest tool in the box but its actually quite nice, seem to prefer to be used at f4. at f2.8 its a bit soft and the contrast is a bit flat, but still very usable. So here's last night and this mornings efforts. taken on digital Samsung nx200
