Asahi Optical Co. Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 20mm f/4.5-16.0

Despite being released quite far into the M42 era. This lens is somewhat a letdown among Asahi’s offerings. Its prone to flare and exhibit a lower contrastwhen compared to its siblings. This lens is also issued in a Super-Takumar version which surprisingly many find better than the SMC version.
