Nice.

The 55/2.2, both in preset and Auto Tak versions, is a lens I like very much (I too use it on M4/3). Anyone on here used it on FF ?

These old preset and Auto Taks are very sharp. I got this one on ebay and it came as a pair with a 135mm Preset Takumar, $85 for the two of them including shipping. Both lenses are in excellent condition, all I had to do to them was a light exterior cleaning. Definitely one of the best lenses I have and it performs great from wide open to f11. It compares well with my Sigma 60mm f2.8 DN C in image quality, but the Auto Tak has nicer bokeh (probably the 10 blade aperture) and for build quality, it's the Auto Tak all the way. I use it with a Kecay macro focusing helicoid adapter and It's a great combination.

And significantly less CA than the later Takumars, I think ?
