Which Takumar 50 f1.4 do you have. There were 3 radioactive versions - 7 element Super Takumar, Super - Multi-Coated and SMC?

It's a Super-Takumar. Serial #1646499

My (recently deceased) father-in-law purchased it in Singapore or Hong Kong with his Spotmatic around 1965. Most of the pictures of my wife when she was growing up were taken with this lens (he also had a 35/3.5 and 200/4).. now I get to take pictures of our kids with the same glass.  I love that.

If you take a great photograph, I really don't care whether it came from a Leica or smartphone. Just share it.
