After renovating my 'Old Friend' I got back after 40 years 'in the Wilderness' with some-one who didn't look after it -- I went out loaded with 2007 dated Fuji Acros 100, Rated 100 ASA and processed in my 'Home--Made MICROPHEN' 1+3 for 12 mins at 20oC
F 2.8 and 1/250th

Full Aperture f1.8 and cropped photo

f 5.6 and 1/125th dull light

f 2.8 and 1/125th

right, thank's for clarifying, should have known, you mentioned one photo was taken @f1.8

Auto Takumar f1.8/55mm comes in two versions, the later and more common one looks like later Super Takumara, the earlier version is the only Takumar with 'zebra design' and still got the lever like all other Auto Takumars
