Same Old Daffs - New (old) Lens

Daffodil images are a dime a dozen, I know! :lame:

However, this is a test of the old Tele-Takumar 300/6.3. This is an uncoated lens, and is the usual long tube of a lens from the heydays of Pentax telephoto equipment.

I'm sure that the Sigma SD-14 and Foveon sensor has added features that bring out the dimensionality, but I also feel that this old lens is surprisingly sharp. Since the daffodils wee somewhat on the same plane, I was able to keep most of the depth-of-field concomitant with the group of flowers.

The "old lenses" still can show good results and I am pleased with the rendering of this lens, even if it is a pretty slow lens. :)
