Asahi's oldest lens on the newest camera
Jul 23, 2009

I thought it was fun to use Asahi's oldest lens again on the newest camera. I have tried this lens before when I bought my Pentax *ist DS new back in 2004. But not in a serious way as I was more of a collector than a photographer back then. The lens is the 50mm f/3.5 Asahi-Kogaku Takumar (type I) which was the standard lens of the Asahiflex I from 1952. As you may know, the Asahiflex I was the first Japanese 35mm SLR.

What strikes me is the very smooth bokeh of this little lens!
