First shot with Tele-Takumar 300mm/6.3, Gull on ice (1pic)

Finally got a chance to try out my new Tele-Takumar 300mm/6.3, first it's not well suited for action shots, slow lens, focusing ring too stiff but precise. Tripod collar is there but not well made, when you loose the knob the lens is moving in every directions !

Hard to get the focus right because i have to stop the lens to f/8 for sharpness, not a bad lens but for static subjects.

here we go, some cold nights and ice on the pond:

K20D,ISO 500, 1/400 at f/8,tripod.
