Asahi Super Takumar 55mm f/2.0 Vintage Lens Review

Super Takumar 55mm f/2.0

The classic 50mm standard lens is well established as a great option when exploring using older lenses on digital DSLRs. The Asahi Pentax M42 screw thread lenses are probably one of the best-known options, but is the reputation justified and are they really suitable for regular use in terms of handling as well as the quality of results? Here we have a very well cared for sample of the 55mm f/2 Model II lens, dating from between 1971 to 1974. Let's have a close look at what it can do, coupled with the 36mp Pentax K-1.
