When I get home from work, I see the neighbor's flower for more testing opportunity with the 8-element lens. The super-takumar is colorful and have very good contrast even at wider apertures
In f/2.0 with a close up +4 filter.
Likely in f/2.0 without close up
Wide open in f/1.4 without close up
at f/2.0 without close up.
The good color from this lens makes the visual pop on the subject. I hate to use the over-hyped wording but I do see the 3-D look from this lens. I love its smooth off focus rendering. I am trying to find something to complain about the lens -- some fringing and some glowing edgess at wider aperture but nothing can be taken away for its great color and bokeh.
