    Nikkor 50/1.8 AFD vs. Nikkor 50/2 AI vs. Pentax SMC Super Takumar 1.4

    Here is a side by side comparison of 3 50mm lenses i currently own:

    Nikkor 50 f1.8 AFD
    Nikkor 50 f2 AI
    Pentax SMC f1.4 Super Takumar

    this McFarlane toy was shot available light on a sturdy ArcaSwiss Z1 tripod head and Gitzo 3-series tripod legs and manual focusing is done via D700's Live View feature. Manual Exposure using Sekonic light meter.

    @f5.6 Original size


    @f2.0 Original size


    I leave to you who the winner is. The loser--as you may have figured out already--is me...because i should be out there making real pictures instead of doing this mundane lens tests.

    The PentaxSuper Takumar is one of the few lenses known to have taken an in-focus picture of Godzilla while he munched on Ginza.
    It holds a special place because of that.
