Assuming its a Super Tak, S-M-C, or SMC, a 49mm pinch cap will work.

Ciao a tutti. Sono nuovo del Forum e ne approfitto subito per una domanda facile facile: che differenza c'Ŕ fra questi due obiettivi?

- Asahi Super Takumar f1.8 55mm e Asahi SMC Takumar f1.8 55mm.

Grazie per chi mi illuminerÓ!!!

Optics are the same,
most likely there is a difference in both coating and appearance.

SMC stands for Super Multi Coated, the Super Takumar is an earlier model and should have simpler coating
( some are reported to already have the then famous Pentax Multi Coating )

The focus ring of the Super Takumar is made of metal, the later released SMC got it rubberized.

In between came the S-M-C Takumar, short for the model that has 'Super Multi Coated Takumar' fully written out on it's name ring. ( on the SMC it says SMC Takumar )
The S-M-C Tak has the full metal body of the earlier Super Takumar and is the first line with the Super Multi Coating.
