Not surprised - as far as I can figure out, quite a few in K Mount!

I think I have the least preferred version, just a Super, but it's still the best lens I own, even compared to other Taks priced 7 to 10 times as much.

50mm/1.4 Takumar in k-mount? Not really. When the k-mount version was released ~ 1975, it was called the SMC Pentax 50mm/f1.4.

How are you counting these?

I would name them like this.

Super Tak 50/1.4, 8-element version
Super Tak 50/1.4, 7 element version
Super-Multi-Coated Tak 50/1.4 7 element version that supports open aperture of the ES, ESII and Spot F
SMC 50/1.4

That is 4. There are some minor variations with font an trim within the first 2.
