    Build like a swiss watch, wonderful for portraiture
    and also very good in all situations.
    Use it is really easy, very fast and powerfull.

    c’est un magnifique objectif pour portraits,
    mais il est aussi ? l’aise dans tous les domaines.

    Used here with extension tubes, the SMC takumar 85mm renders great colors and sharpness. This lens is a good performer being luminous, and not subject to flare. Its sharpness is good though not superlative in my opinion (compared to the 135/2.5 SMC Takumar for instance).
