    Some wild flowers shots in my neighbor's garden. They are shot with Super-Takumar 50mm f/1.4 8-element in f/1.4 and f/2.0 with Sony A7. I went through great length of trouble with repeated return of 8-element version of the Super-Takumar 50mm f/1.4. When I finally get a good copy, it is worth the efforts, the tiny Super-Takumar have good color, contrast and off-focus rendering is smooth and pleasing.

    Cheers,
    Hin

    Some square crops with Super-Takumar 50mm f/1.4 8-element and Sony A7. Some of the shots don't have the critical focus but I like the color and bokeh in my first day with the lens.

    Thanks,
    Hin
