Asahi-Kogaku Tele-Takumar 1:3.5 f- 135mm

Helping family member downsize and joined this forum to determine if a lens we found has any value.

It is a chrome Asahi-Kogaku Tele-Takuman 1:3.5 No. 80451 f=135mm
It was stored in a brown leather lens case. I have photos if anyone can help. Appreciate your reading.

These very rarely come up on eBay. They sell for high prices.

It is worth getting aproper valuation so that you do not sell for a price where someone else sings about their 'good deal'.

Thanks. I live in Ontario Canada. Would I go to a camera store to get an appraisal? Sorry for my ignorance but cameras & accessories are beyond me.

Here's more info about the lens:

Tele-photo Takumar 135mm F3.5 Reviews - M37 Screwmount Prime Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database

We have a buy/sell section on the forum. I would recommend listing it there:

The Pentax Marketplace | Sell Pentax | Photographic Equipment for Sale - PentaxForums.com

I think this lens may have some value among collectors. You could start high ($200-400) and see if anyone wants it.

You would be better to sell it to a forum member. A camera store in canada would likely not touch it. They know very little these days about old Pentax gear. If you want to try, the best bet would be downtown camera in Toronto, but they will likely not really help you much

The only problem is that you can't sell it here for an auction you need to come up with a price first.

Post some photos of the lens I am sure there will be interest here,
