Takumar 35mm 3.5f on K-7

Hello guys

I am currently using the 50mm 1.4f for some street photos and portraits but recently saw the takumar lens on bargain and wondered if it would be nice to have ?
Does anyone try this lens on a k-7 ? what will be the differences with the 50mm other than be slighly wider and aperture wise ?
will I be just wasting my money ?

Any help appreciated

Which version is it? I've got an Auto-Takumar 3.5/35mm and it's an amazing little lens. It's actually my smallest lens (46mm filter thread and really tiny) and even without SMC it can produce excellent images

The super-takumar version is also nice. It's really small and light. Recommended all the way if you can find it at less than 6000. The norm is around 5000 and if you're lucky you can get it here for around 3500. If it's even less, buy it if you think you want it.

My only regret is that this could be faster (there's also a 35/2 for that reason but too big in takumar flavor.).

well ,then after all is not a bargain.... I found it for 6,300 yen ($65) I think it should be the Auto version but haven't check that detail... Will check sometime this week and hopefully get it !

thanks guys

It's still a good price. By the way, have a look at the yahoo auctions (LBA warning) for japan, they have some really good bargains around.
For example, this one: Z6283?PENTAX SPOTOMATIC SP ????????Takumar1?3.5/35 - Yahoo!??????

CBA in action?

I've seen quite a lot of 28/3.5 and 35/3.5 for sale around here. Must have produced a lot of those along with the 50's.

I'm tempted to bid on a Me Super to photography 101. Did you ever get your MX serviced?

I've got some Takumar (including the 35) that I could lend you if you want to try them for a while. PM me if you're interested.

Don't tell me about CBA, I've got now 4 screwmount cameras(Two in working order) plus the two MX. But sometimes it's cheaper to buy a (broken) camera with a working lens. This way I got the 35/3.5 with a (surprisingly) "recently" CLA'd Spottie for $30.
The broken MX is sadly still broken, and will be for a while. The CLA service here is $155 for the "all-around store" and $180 for the "pentax mostly" service store. Eric on the other hand would service it for $120 including return shipping, even with shipping it's cheaper. Now I only need to get the money

BTW, there's a ME (non-super) for $20 with a M 50/1.7 but the lens has fungus. i don't remember the state of the camera.

I have the Super-Takumar version and it's my smallest lens - I love it. I pay for it 30 euro at a camera flea market in Hamburg. Here are some examples with the K10D - it can't be worst on the K-7








Cheers
