Must be the first version then with 5 elements. Lettering on the front ring is also ore archaic. According to this site: Takumarology - Takumar Field Guide v1 has a serial number between: 580xxx and 1891xxx.

Thank you for reinforcing my lean towards V1. Looking at the reflection of my face on the rearmost element, it could be flat.....or it could be my face.....I avoid looking at my reflection much.
I do agree with the angry photographers opinion of the build quality, this lens may be old and tatty but the inner workings seem to reflect superb precision parts.
Time for a look through the site you provided a link for.

A definite knock on his credibility.

Bearded or otherwise, correct or incorrect, I really don't care. I just think it's nice to see someone who's firmly wedded to another system waxing lyrical about the optical performance and image rendering of Asahi/Pentax glass (to the point where he regards them among the best of the very large number of lenses he's handled). Subjective or not, that's got to count for something.

I'm not sure they're compatible...
Canon yes, with a chipped adapter you get full metering.
Fuji yes, if we are talking about the mirrorless X system.
Nikon no.
