m42 smc takumar 50mm macro

Hi,

I recently acquired the above lens. The lens is in excellent shape. The manual/auto switch is on auto. Since I have a k-x, I need to flip it over to manual. However, the switch won't budge. Is there a special way to switch to manual compared to other m42 takumar lenses?

Thanks

I have an M42 100mm macro Takumar that won't budge unless it's mounted on the camera. Once I have it mounted, I can freely flip the A/M switch. It's weird, but it works for me.

On a lot of the SMC version Taks there is a very tiny pin on the mount base that needs to be pushed in before the A/M switch can be changed. This could be the problem.
