Some shots taken with SMC Takumar 2/55 on Nex, with aperture f4-f5.6, autocontrast applied.

Basic colours are punchier than its close relative Yashinon-DX has. I am saying that without any prejudice, as I really appreciate the fine Yashinon rendering. That might be the main jump-into-the-eyes difference between the two lenses, together with a higher global contrast of the Takumar, while the yashinon-DX is subtler.

Meanwhile Topcor Re GN 1.8/50 has a stronger microcontrast (the first two shots here from the same places) and less basic, more biased colour accents tending to magenta and green.
