Fuji 56/1.2 versus Pentax 50/1.4 Takumar M42
9 months ago

Wild guess would be that there is probably 40 or so years between the 2, the Takumar doesn't and will never have AF, but apart from that? Decide for yourself.

The shots were taken quickly against the light, not preparations etc I asked the girl whether I could quickly take her photos for the purpose of using a 40-ish year old lens versus a 2-week old one. (from retailer that is...). I am aware of the strange shadow on the camera left of her face, but since this was a quick test only and I have no other shots this would have to do ...

Any preference whatsoever?
