Ok so I love checking out lenses from craigslist, especially if I can get a deal. Well just recently I acquired a Super Takumar 50mm Lens from a fellow photographer with the adapter for the canon and man I’m so glad I did! A friend of mine said it feels like a Bentley, so smooth, sturdy, all metal construction, heavy and of course ALL MANUAL!

I’ve never used an all manual lens before so it was interesting getting to know it. It has a great bokeh. I will post some pictures I took with it as well as video. It has a warm feel to it and is sharp! Might turn out to be one my favorite lenses to shoot with! Primes are truly the best! If you can get them, DO!
