Got an SMS

A while ago I bought a SMC Takumar 135/3.5. No lenshood, no case. Got an SMS today that they found a case that I can have for free. Nice service.

For that price definitely get the 300/4 for sure.
Nice find with the case as well. The problem with all the cases that came with all my Taks as I have them all in a cupboard ... as my lenses are all in one bag ... the cases take up too much room. And the lens hoods as well can take up a bit of room too.

So you not only got a free case, but a great deal on another lens? Do these guys have a store in Canada?

I know. I have a vintage 'hardcase' for my gear that caters for the camera and the 3 lenses (including their cases) that came in it. See PentaxForums.com - sterretje's Album: Birthday present 2010
Added 2 extra lenses already, which now means shuffling stuff around to get it all in. This new one will be too much.

Check if you have a shop called Kameraz; they might be related

And here it is

Good condition with signs of use; optical no scratches or whatever. Biggest issue is that the lenshood leans slightly down (as can be seen in the photo) causing vignetting and diffraction.

Mounted on a K10D on the tripod that I borrowed from my girlfriend.
