SMC PENTAX-M 135mm f2.5

My friend at work recently gave me a SMC PENTAX 135mm/f2.5

Made in Japan - K Version (Not Takumar)

I'm calling on your knowledge to help me find what a lens like this might be worth?

It's Minty! Beautiful and comes with the hard case too ;-)

Thanks for the help ;-)

Kenmore Camera has one for sale in excellent - condition for $89.50

There prices usually compare with KEH, who doesn't have any listed at the moment.

if it's the 58mm filter size then it's worth about $180usd. at least it is on ebay. the takumar model is uncoated and is a toss up if it's good are not. filter size is 52mm. my 1st one was a real dud but the one i have now is quite good for the $16 i gave for it..

mine is an older version s/n5280890, markings slightly different on front but still smc and 58mm.

Unfortunately they do not print filter size on the lens

In early 2007, I got my (near-mint) copy off eBay for around $140. Don't sell yours- it's a wonderful lens!

Excellent lens, unfortunately no A position so not very convenient to use with a K10 or K100.
See review of this lens at Pentax SMC-K 135mm f/2.5 - Review / Lab Test Report

Cheers
