The pricing of the lenses on the used market are starting from 25 Euro for rugged versions of the Takumar up to 300 Euro for a mint copy of the Leica, which is a bargain in Leica terms.
The build quality of the Takumars is outstanding, even when the outside is really rugged the smoothness of the focusing is still a benchmark! The build of the Elmarit is like a tank, and the last in the bunch in these game is a only a good build quality of the CZJ Sonnar.
But with every lens of the selection you get your job done with the addition of a real joy of manual focusing.
The sharpness of the Elmarit at f2.8 is excellent and I love the transition from focus to out of focus areas. Both pictures are processed in Lightrom with my Porta Preset.
