I really like the original case
super takumar 35mm f/3.5 with caseI finally managed to get a Super Takumar and I am very impressed with the quality of the lens. The pictures come out quite sharp. But the lens is an M42 mount lens and I paid very inexpensively for it. For a 3rd party adapter, I paid $20 with shipping on a previous purchase of a brand new Bowers m42 adapter from BHPhoto. The Super Takumar lens is a great 35mm lens though it is in M42 mount. I have a Takumar 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 lens in K mount which does not have the coating as in the Super Takumar and the image quality is not as nice as this prime lens.

Overall, I am very impressed with the image quality. I may not be doing the metering correctly in M mode. In A aperture mode, I needed to dial in some amount of Ev compensation. I can't wait to try it on M mode with AE-L stop down metering on wide open at f/2.8. On M mode, I find the stop down metering with adjustment on shutter speed works better for the manual lens.
