The Super-Multi-Coated TAKUMAR 28mm f/3.5 is a wide angle prime lens in M42 mount, made by Asahi Optical Co. for Pentax.

Throughout its lifetime, this lens and other Takumar lenses had several incarnations that involved upgrades to the cosmetic appearance and optical formula. That's why I'm very specific in listing the exact name of this lens.

Those with 'Super-Multi-Coated' and 'SMC' label are the latest generation and have the best optical quality.

Pentax and Takumar lenses are famed for their supreme color saturation even at the widest aperture. Having used this lens briefly on my Nikon D5200, I can really see the difference from my other Nikkor lenses. Sharpness and contrast are at par, but it excels in the color department.

With a maximum aperture of f/3.5, it's great for street photography, landscape, indoor shooting, even portraiture. It might struggle in low light scenes.
