SMC Takumar 55mm f/2.0

I have a Honeywell Pentax SP1000 with a Asahi Optical SMC Takumar 55mm f/2.0 mounted on it. For the life of me I can't figure out how to remove the lens. Can anyone help me? Thanks in advance.

Just unscrew it like a bottle cap, counter-clockwise.

Yes, you need an M42 to Pentax-K adapter. The best one is the one that Pentax themselves make; other models may not work properly or could actually damage your camera or lens.

Yeah, but the genuine Pentax M42 adapters are becoming rarer and rarer from other sites.
The only place to buy them nowadays seems to be the Pentax webstore.

on *istDs?
this is a fabulous camera to use manual focus lenses with, and I am sure you will enjoy the 2/55 SMC Tak!
in case you get into MF lenses I recommend getting a split focus screen, maybe available from the same seller you get the adapter from
