Pentax/Asahi Optics - Takumar thread

2 posts in this topic

 

I don't believe there is a thread for the Pentax/Asahi Optics Takumar line of lenses.

I have created a page on my website to summarize my experience with the 55mm f1.8 Super-Takumar (~ 1970) while mounted on my XT2.

I have read online that many of the old Takumar focal lengths are great performers, well built and quite affordable.  Thought this forum could use a thread for people to share the Takumar line.

My preference is for Minolta Rokkor, Olympus Zuiko and Canon FD lenses and we have some threads on the subject but more info on all 3rd party lenses is always welcome.
