Re: Worth getting a Super Takumar 135/3.5 for $30?

I remember seeing the five-element m-series from my selling days in the 1970s; not sure that the earlier four-element lenses were quite as sharp. Certainly a lot of fun just because it is very well made, and sized like a jewel. I think it performs pretty closely optically to the m-series 75-150 f/4 (which I have) - and that's very decent for an old zoom. Probably worth a try at that price.
