Another winner of a Takumar. The image circle covers the GFX sensor really well, with a bit of soft vignetting but basically a whole usable frame. On the GFX, you get a full frame equivalent of a 70mm ƒ/1.4 which is beastly, and on the APS-C X series you have the equivalent of a 130mm ƒ/2.8, also very nice.
I use this mainly on the GFX, although it shines on the X-series too. Sharpness is pretty good wide open (it doesn’t have the soft ‘glow’ so many manual primes have) and excellent when stopped down a little.
Here’s a sample image taken with the Asahi Pentax Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 85mm F1.8:
