Asahi Pentax Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 35mm F3.5

An opportunistic ebay find, I’ve only used this once so far. Early results suggest there’s decent sharpness to be had, though perhaps not always great resolution: I got a few frames that look in-focus but just lack a little detail, while others have really quite good detail.

I’ll need to investigate further; it may be light conditions/direction, or might just be that the infinity stop isn’t quite as reliable on the M42 adapter for my Fuji cameras and I need to be more careful with the focus magnification.
