Vintage Lens Comparison-Bokeh

Posted on December 9, 2020 at 2:05 PM Comments comments (0)

This is a lens comparison between two awesome old lenses that are very similar in age and focal length. Both are just over 50 years old, the Takumar is a few years older than the Sears lens. Both lenses were shot at there widest apeture and both images are shot with the same camera, same exact settings, and same exact processing settings (very little post processing).

Personally, I actually like the bokeh and saturation of the Sears lens the best.... 

Camera:

Pentax K1 Full Frame 36mp Sensor

Lenses:

1st: Super-Takumar 50mm f/1.4 [8 Element Version]

2nd: Auto-Sears 55mm f/1.4 [Re-Branded Rikenon Version]

A lot was going on in the sky on July 20th, 2020!!!!!

This first shot is of Comet Neowise with a Lightning Cloud fired up....

This 2nd shot is of the Milky Way, Jupiter and Saturn (2 bright stars upper left), and a Thunderhead lit up with Lightning reflecting off the lake....

This 3rd shot is of the Milky Way with a huge Fireball on the right that I got extremely lucky to capture in this image. We could actually hear the fireball burning through the air!

I took this shot this morning right before sunrise, on my way to work. This is over-looking the airport in Blairsville, GA.
