Most legacy film era teles are going to perform very poorly on a high density sensor like this. But recently a fellow forum member posted those snaps from SMC Takumar 400/5.6 . This looks good to me, as far as 50 year old lenses go.

Thanks for the caveat. As it happens, I'm currently watching that exact model on ebay. Quite tempting even just to play with.

To complete this discussion, I didn't win the Tele-Lentar, so I bought an SMC Tele-Takumar 400mm f/5.6 M42 ... looking forward to it!

Thanks to all who contributed anyhow to this out-of-place thread.
