Is this the first super takumar 50 1,4 with 8 elements?

Is this the first super takumar 50 1,4 with 8 elements?

I sent my father out buying this for me. Will get it in a few days with mail. I like to believe it's the first 8 element version of the lens. Sadly I haven't got any good pics of it from dad as you can see below.

I got the 3rd gen 50 1,4 at home, and I don't think it's the same.

It looks like the IR mark is to the right of the 4 so 8 element it is ,I believe . Nice find ! But of course all 50 1.4 Taks are nice !

Thanks.

The seller (and my dad) did not know what lens it was. The seller believed it was a Takumar manufactured around 1973 and sold it for like 30 dollars. Would have felt bad for me if I'd bought it knowing it was the 8 element one. ^^

The sellers sale thing just said super takumar 50 1.4 without any pictures, so it was kind of a gamle. For that price I did not even think about what version it was.
