Super Takumar 1,4 50mm

Hi

I just found a Super Takumar 1,4 50mm on Ebay, but it doesn't say if its SMC or some other type . So how do I know what type of Takumar it is. I cnat get in touch with the buyer since its the middle of the night atm and the Auction closes early tomorrow morning.

What I do can find out on the lens ring is as follows

Super-Takumar 1:1,4/50 serial 3106711 Asahi Opt. Co Lens made in Japan.

Should be very happy for some quick help.

Or do you have some other good lenses that doesn't cost a fortune for my K5.

Here you go: SMC/S-M-C/Super Takumar 50mm F1.4 Reviews - M42 Screwmount Normal Primes - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database

This lens was made in 3 variations: Super-Takumar, Super-Multi-Coated Takumar and SMC Takumar. S-M-C and SMC are SMC coated. The Super-Takumar is coated but not with the same SMC formula although it is rumored that late models did indeed have the SMC coating. If it is SMC it will say so.

It is a 7-element Super Takumar probably late 1960s vintage. It does not have SMC coatings. If you do not have a M42 to K adapter you will need one.

Well, you kinda said it yourself. It's a Super Takumar.

I think you mean the seller.

I hope you do know that the K-5 and the Takumar lenses are not compatible out of the box, and you will need an M42 adapter. For out of the box compatibility, you'd be better looking for the K, M or A variant of the 50/1.4.
