I got lucky..smc takumar 85 1.8.

Through a chance conversation with a third party, I'm now the lucky owner of one of these. Been looking for a while, so I'm pretty happy.
Absolutely Mint, No marks on the lens, maybe just a couple on the edge of the hood, came complete with caps & case.
It's in such beautiful condition, I'm somewhat frightened to handle it!
Cheers, Pickles.

Get out an shoot with it ... I have the f/1.9 version ... and it's such a gem of a lens for the price.
I love mine.

Don't let anyone know what you paid for it. It will start some kind of frenzy.

In saying that, please post your worthy images in the Takumar thread

Looking forward to seeing some Tak shots of Melbourne.

Enjoy, I've got the Pentax SMC version which had an outing around the CBD during today's afternoon peak hour.

Please post a review along with the price, if you could, in the appropriate section of our lens database once you get a chance to use this gem a little!

I'd love to put up some shots, but I'm shooting film with my Black Spotmatic SP11, so I don't quite know how to do that!...Not very computer/digital literate either...but I WILL enjoy the lens!
Cheers, Pickles.
