Got a great deal on a beauty of a lens. Can't believe there isn't a thread already?

Pentax Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 200mm f/4

Mine is the later SMC variant of the Takumar 200mm f/4 that started production in 1971 (no idea how the serial numbers on Pentax lenses relate to production dates). This was my 2nd manual focus lens I purchased, after I stumbled on an 8-element Super Takumar 50mm f/1.4 locally in LV. Now I seem to have a variety of manual focus lenses, none of which I shoot very often as I should.

Shot using an Olympus E-PL5 and a Fotga M42-μ4/3 adapter.

Mine is an Asahi Pentax 200/4 Super Takumar M42 with single coating. Lens is beautiful, small enough, super long focus throw, sharp wide open with some ugly purple fringing.
I got a m42 -> Nikon adapter too to use it with a Nikon mount focal reducer too.

These are all shot at "Parco Nord", a city park in Milan, at a small artificial lake that was recently built. Niguarda, the district closer to the lake, has a years old problem with a small river nearby, the Seveso, that overflows every time the rains are to too strong and persistent, flooding the streets, the basements, sometimes the metro station too. I live on the other side of the park, so I'm safe.
A guy in the park asked me if this was the lake they built just to solve this problem, as a containment tank. To be honest I have no idea, but I suppose it is. Well, winter is coming, so we'll find out.
Whatever the reason they brought here, or just arrived, a few mallards, crows and others and this now is my favourite spot for wildlife training :)
