What a nice results! Guess I should mine more often. Is it anything like this one? http://forum.mflenses.com/how-auto-takumar-lenses-were-sold-back-then-t14025.html

@ Tobias,
thank you very much. No3 is on the coast in south Vietnam, these colorfully painted boats are woven of natural material. the girl, well, she is a beauty - at a 'body painting competition' during a 'Sanur village festival' in Bali. There were a few models, all surrounded by men, many of them photographers. The challenge was to get her into the frame without having heads popping out in front Wink

@Peter:
Peter I hope you will give your's a spin and add your typically great samples! I find it to be a very like-able lens, it is even smaller than the later versions but just as good, and has the typical Auto Tak colors to boot. Even found the lever to be of use: unlike that of other Auto Taks it has a very short throw and a resistance 'click' before it locks wide open, enabling presetting the aperture, pushing the lever until the resistance point to open aperture while focusing, releasing lever to measure.

oh, yours is new in the box! Shocked
I don't have any in it's box, but just check out this collector ( who surprisingly seems to have stayed pretty much 'undiscovered' ), you will love to view his stream: http://www.flickr.com/photos/ebelbeb/

mine is in good shape too, with original caps and case:
