A Japanese needed for 77mm and 43mm Lens technical report

I was wondering is there someone available who can translate from Japanese these last two pages?
(page1)
(page2)

I fellow Pentaxian managed to translate one of the articles but the other one is still to be translated. I left a message at the dpreview but it seems there is no one else with Japanese language to complete the translation.

Apparently there are a lot of references to Takumars.


(I have no idea, but I'm trying to get Mike Cash interested).

There are zero references to Takumars in those two pages.

They're not really technical reports. They're a couple pages of lens reviews from the film camera days. The first page consists mostly of info about the construction of the lens caps. Real yawner.

Fortunately for me, I am an American and the OP specified a Japanese person, so I am excused from translating them.

Hi Mike,
When I said Japanese I had in mind a person with japanese language skills. My assumption was that it would be easier to find a Pentaxian from Japan than a person from another country who knows Japanese, but obviosly that's not the case.
