I owned a Topcon RE Super for a short time in the early seventies. Bear in mind that I don't have a lot of experience with the camera. However, one of the very sharpest slides I have in my collection was taken with the Topcor 58mm 1.4 lens. Didn't know the Topcor lens was manufactured by Cosina. The camera was heavily used when I bought it and the shutter developed problems soon after. Unfortunatly the only prime Nikkors I have much experience with are the 28 f2.8 and the 105 f2.5.
Just curious, why this comparison?
