    I don't normally make a big deal about a lens purchase but this one is one I've been contemplating for a couple months....and technically I could not afford it, I had to borrow some money to get it.:blushing:

    50mm Super Macro Takumar 42mm screw mount

    Now I have a nice matched set of Super Takumar 50mm lenses :thumbup:

    ...It looks like a lens cap (with some glass in it).

    Judging by the shadow (depending on your lighting set-up, I might be way off) it doesn't look to be much more than an inch tall)... I curious now, got any more pictures of it (side view, maybe)?

    I rifeled this off pretty quick before I left for work tonight, so no I don't have a side view of it. But it's as tall as the 50mm takumar give or take. I want to say it's about two maybe three inches tall.

    I'll get one of the side with a ruler tomorrow before I come into work for you.


    *EDIT*
    In the menetime I'll steal this from Ritzcam.com

    Neither of my Macro Lenses are very big. Then again they are both 50mm (one Canon and now the this one) but still.

    Yeah, they usually do, it's almost always little more than a short weak burst of air when I buy from this vendor. I am always in a hurry to photograph the new stuff....I have only cleaned and reshot one peice of equipment....never cleaned prior to initial shot. I get home after buying it go to bed get up take a picture of it then leave for work, I'm always in a hurry :(

    My Canon Macro prime was even worse than this but it does take some nice shots, so I have no doubts on this one.

    Thanks Battou.

    I was probably drunk when I wrote that, lol - no depth perception.

    It's definitely a lot meatier than I thought though.
