Nice set, excellent results at wide open.

Some more with this lens. It does have very few faults; one of them is a bit of fringing, hopefully corrected easily in Lightroom:

This one had pretty strong fringing, but it's also fairly typical for that sort of shot!

The same characteristics than the Tak 50mm f1,4 : excellent smooth bokeh and nice transition between sharpness and  blur .

Exccellent results there, I'll have to take my M42 version out soon and perhaps add to the thread.

The Super-Multi-Coated Takumar version 2 is optically identical to the first K version (not to be confused with the radically different "Bayonet 135mm f2.5"). You know you have version 2 if the tiny part number stamped into the backside of the A/M switch is 43812.
