DESCRIPTION - Highly popular 55 f/1.8 is general purpose lens identical in function to that of 50mm fll.4 except for slightly less light-gathering power (no great disadvantage under most outdoor lighting conditions) and marginally longer focal length for slightly tighter image composition on focusing screen. (55mm f/2 is similar optically and functionally but is supplied as original equipment only with SP500 and SPI000 camera bodies.)

Features. A true standard lens must above all give fine all-round performance and the Super-Takumar 55mm f1.8 has been perfected over the years with this object in mind Accordingly the lens design is supremely practical ~ distortion is eliminated, the same even performance is obtained at long or short range, image resolution is high and results with color photography are superb. This is truly an all purpose quality optic at home in all fields of general photography.

Main uses. A standard lens is the first step toward an interchangeable lens system. As an introduction to the Super-Takumar range, the 55mm F1.8 can be readily recommended.

Also super-multi-coated standard lens for Spotmatic II, it reduces flare and boosts contrast to a degree far beyond what was previously possible in optical technology. You can get pictures with more detail and richer colors than is possible with any other system at any price. It also features a tougher coating which means the super-multi-coated lenses are more scratch resistant and durable.
