The Takumar 55 1.8 was introduced in 1965 for the Spotmatic (M42 mount) and in 1975 (Pentax-K) and was produced in large numbers thereafter. The 55 1.8 is one of the most affordable lenses from Takumar and offers great value for money. The rather unusual focal length of 55mm is ideal for portraiture photography, even on cropped sensor cameras as it will act as a 82,5mm f1.8 lens.
The Takumar 55mm is a good standard lens in many ways. It is a very versatile lens that you can use for landscapes, portraiture, street and even product shoots.
