Super Takumar Macro 135 f2.5

I can't find this lens in the Lens Review. The closest I can find is SMC/S-M-C/Super Takumar 135 f2.5, it does not say macro.

Does anybody have any info. Did this came with a K mount version?

Thanks.

Haven't heard of 135mm macro takumar, but in K-mount there is a Takumar 135mm F2.5 Bayonet which I think is inferior to other Pentax 135mm lenses.

there is no such thing as a Macro-Takumar 135/2.5. the Macro-Takumars only came in two focal lengths 50 & 100mm.

For the non-macro, other than the link ovim provided above, does the Super Takumar 135/2.5 exists in bayonet mount?

No. These are the Takumar/Pentax/Asahi f2.5 135mm lenses:
Super-Takumar 1/2.5 135mm - M42 mount, 58mm filter, around 450 grams
Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 1/2.5 135mm f2.5 - M42 mount, 58mm filter, two slightly different optical formulas, 450-470 grams. One optical formula is like the Super-Takumar and one is like the SMC Pentax.
SMC Pentax 1/2.5 135mm - K mount, 58mm filter, 500 grams, two cosmetically different trim rings
Takumar Bayonet 1:2.5 135mm - K mount, 52mm filter, 395 grams, slide-out hood, multi-colored distance and aperture markings.

The Takumar Bayonet 1:2.5 135mm has a slightly shorter minimum focus distance but nothing anyone would call macro, 4 feet vs. 5 for the rest.
