Sharp Shooter Super-Takumar Asahi 55mm 1:2

You can't go wrong with a Super-Takumar lens. Sharp images, sharp contrast and crazy bokeh. I purchased my 55mm copy (a steal) for around $23.00 USD. The lens does have an inordinate amount of these white particles sitting on the back element lens but you would not even know that if I did not reveal this tragic flaw. The pictures here would not even show any discernable trace of particulate in the way. The quality make and feel of Super-Takumars is phenomenal. If you are not into manual focus lens and believe in the auto-focus Gods, a takumar inside your camera bag is worth a bit of space any day. I recommend getting yourself a copy in the 50mm, 55mm and 135mm. Matter fact any will do. These lenses perform like champions. If the post man would hurry up and deliver my takumar 135mm I can get outside and test it out.
