Pros: Price, quality, bokeh

Cons: Nobody

Opinion: A lens that I particularly love, at full aperture allows you to create beautiful portraits with a beautiful bokeh and beautiful contrasts. I prefer it to other vintage lenses because it returns sharper images, contrasty and that need less post production. For what I paid (80 euros) at the level of quality I could not really ask for more, I would buy another thousand times.

Pros: Bokeh, high definition also to TA, precise and cutting down of 2-3 stops

Cons: none

Opinion: One of my favorite lenses. It must be proven, suddenly everything becomes clear, clean. It makes it very well in the first stop from TA and it's great for a portrait set, which captures the details and create a blurred progressive lenses that only very bright, quality can give. Rivals the latest additions in terms of precision. Strictly by hand, I would have used in the manual even if it had autofocus. Bokeh typical and very pleasant. It has its years but flows both fire that diaphragms without obstinate. A lens as it should.

Pros: Blurred, color rendering, compactness, ease of use

Cons: Lack AF

Opinion: And 'one of the lenses that must be tried at least once in your life if you decide to experiment with the objectives vintage. The building is impressive, my copy has more than 30 years, and the rings are still extremely fluid and make it a real pleasure to use. And 'the lens I use the most because it gives one blurred beautiful 1.4, an excellent performance between f2 and f2.8 and f5.6 in absolute clarity by then. Placing at the top of the fuzzy Fujinon EBC 50 and 1.4 at the top of the three-dimensionality Planar 50 1.4 I think the Takumars halfway between the two, and as they say, "in medio stat virtus". Besides, it is much more readily available (and cheap) with respect to the above objectives.

Pros: Sharpness at RT, construction, size and weight, cost, three-dimensional color, contrast.

Cons: Even considering the optics in an absolute sense and with the criteria applicable to modern optics (ignoring the cost is often less than 100 Euros) it is difficult to find cons.

Opinion: Phenomenal. I expected good performance with a view to assessing relative to its age. Well, the performance is very good in an absolute sense already at f/1.4. The yield is highly three-dimensional and recalls some of the achievements made in Germany and fuzzy, although it is a bit 'nervous, it is very pleasant. Built to last at least as much as the time decay of its radioactive element (some geological era ;)), it is a pleasure to use; smooth and well lubricated metal rings make it extremely satisfying to use this light. The aura of legend that surrounds this light it is well deserved.

Pros: brightness, colors, compact

Cons: soft at room temperature, on a distant subject has an almost soft focus

Opinion: purchased for just over 100 € from a user here on the forum, is a lens that gives me so much satisfaction. very warm colors and full-bodied, the same picture taken with the Tamron 17/50 is more "cool". is very compact for a 50 1.4, the blur is nice but nothing special, at least in my opinion. Fine bargain really a
