Post #2 - here goes
I have been assembling a few lens for my 'new' SLR, a Pentax Super ME
I intended to go for the SMC Super Takumar primes as I have heard some really good things about them. I currently have a 28mm and a 50mm F1.4 SMC.
I picked up a plain Takumar 135mm F2.5 recently (not realising it wasn't an SMC Super Takumar) and haven't heard any good things about it since (soft etc.)
So... should I replace it with a SMC variant, of which there are many highly rated versions? (or maybe I should shut up and wait for my film to be developed!)
Alternatively I have a cheap Series 1 F3.5 Vivitar 70-210 zoom arriving soon, any opinions on this? (version 2 according to
How sharp are these compared to a prime? even if it is 'just' a Takumar 135?
Thanks for your thoughts!!
