The Beauty and the Beast V

This time I’ll present two extraordinary lenses in my tiny series with a beauty and a beast. Well, guess who’s the beauty and who’s the beast.

On the left side of the ring there is the
Voigtländer Super-Wide-Heliar 4.5/15mm in M39 Mount
Optics: 8 elements in 6 groups (incl. 1 aspherical element)
Aperture: f/4.5-f/22
Min. focussing distance: 0.3m

On the right side of the ring there is the
Takumar SMC 3.5/15mm in M42 Mount
Optics: 13 elements in 12 groups (incl. 1 aspherical element)
There exist two versions – depending on the markings on the distance scale
7-4-2 means with aspherical element, 7-3-2 means w/o aspherical element
Aperture: f/3.5-f/22
Filters: UV, skylight, yellow and orange included
Min. focussing distance: 0.3m

Just to mention, images were taken with a Sony A7R2 and the Carl Zeiss Jena Flektogon 2.4/35mm lens.

In case you’d like to comment, it’s appreciated … and maybe, you want to visit my website or my flickr page too.

So long … and thanks for all the fish.

  1. You have the 15mm f/3.5 SMC Takumar lens? Impressive, this is a rare lens and was very expensive when new. Do you use it often? How is it optically?
