If I didn't know I'd say you used ZD 50/2. Nice one!

BTW where do you keep all the equipement? I'd love to see it Very Happy

I really love this Pentax 50/4 optic; it's probably my default lens. I love it enough that I have both the older 1:1 Macro-Takumar version and the later 1:2 S-M-C Takumar version. The poor Super Takumar version is the odd one out, not having either the longer helicoid nor the SMC coatings. But, with the Tessar design and the well shielded front element, (as your pictures demonstrate) its a great optic even without the SMC coatings!

i like older macro takumar that goes 1:1 better because it can go to 1:1 on it's on and it's tiny lens
