I'm having trouble understanding what "dated optically means"? Especially when half the Pentax world appear to be chasing increasingly esoteric M42 Takumar lenses, whilst others complain about perfectly good lenses, just because they are last years design. And don't mention the hoards of Sony A7 users, using all sorts of adapters in search of the elusive and perfect vintage primes.

It means not on the same level of resolving power and aberration correction than what contemporary designs have. Simple as that.

Obviously, not everyone cares about those things, like the 'takumar seekers' you mention. I assume however that the OP does, as he uses Fuji xf lenses as a baseline for comparison.
