What a steal, good job! I think you should sell me your 200 f4, it seems out of place in your collection

My 55mm 1.8 seems a touch yellow as well, you sure it doesn't have some sort of coating? I was going to try and UV bleach it... but if it wouldn't fix it, I guess I won't bother.

All say Super-Takumar Asahi Petax:

35 3.5
50 1.4
55 1.8
28 3.5
135 3.5
200 4

Did I do good? They all screw on so I don't know how to make them work with my k-x but I took a chance. According to the lens database I did real good. What do you think? I skipped on the old bodies. I didn't know if they were worth anything.
I think you got ripped off BUT I will step in and save you and take them off y9our hands

Just kidding. You did very well.

it is worth getting an M42 to K adaptor and using them. You can have a lot of fun with them,

Note however, use them with hoods, as the coatings are not as good as later lenses and they can produce some flare

You are bad. very bad...
I would definitely offer him another $5 for the body. Poor old man, how can he sell the body?

I must be a soft touch. Anyone want to buy 6 Zenits or 5 Praktica's ?

Good thing he had a couple of hoods with them. Cases, hoods, filters...I ordered the official pentax adapter.

See the thread running on the 8 element 50mmF1.4 lens.

I deliberately went looking for flare with no hood, and posted a shot. I also posted one of my cat to show the other side of the lens.
