S-M-C Takumar 35mm f2

Ok, here is the situation-- I can get that one with an S-M-C Takumar 55mm f2 for $175CAD. Should I go for it. Both the lenses are in EX+ shape, 35mm has also the octagonal hood but no case (Please do not consider my DAL35, I had to have it & and I also have the ST 35mmf3.5). Perhaps I should ask, is it a fair price?

I'd say yes.
But that's just me

Just keep in mind that it will probably have to be de-yellowed.

I took the deal, came with some goodies: flash sync cord for vivitar (2) (I was going to buy from bay), Viv 2800 flash, Henimax light meter, self timer (very cute looking), Cokin A holder with 3 filter, Makinon 80-200mm f4.5 and a SP1000 body and ofcourse the leather bag.

This was a good deal actually. The S-M-C version of the Takumar 35/2 can fetch a decent price just by itself.

It has some yellowing compared to my 3.5/35, I will put it inside the TLC chamber 9 hour a day until it gets cured.

I am happy with the purchase after I see the results.
