is this Takumar 50mm 1.4 the old 8 element version?

Hi guys,

just won this Takumar 50mm 1.4 on ebay and was wondering if it's the old 8 element version?

Pentax screw: Super Takumar 50mm F1.4 - eBay, Lenses, Lenses Filters, Cameras Photo. (end time 12-Oct-10 08:05:02 AEDST)

If you enlarge the first photo the red mark is to the right (inside) the number 4. I don't physically have the lens yet to check the serial number.

I have a 7 element version and love it and have been searching for the earlier 8 element versions, so i'm hoping this is the later.

cheers,

Yes this is first version of Takumar 50 f1,4. Only first version have M and A letters, later versions have the words auto and man.

The IR mark is between f/4 and the diamond. So definitely Version I.

Looks like another 8 element is on sell (I am not the seller).
