Ohh ... I forgot to say. My 105mm is with preset. That is Takumar 1:2.8/105 preset - and it's got 49mm filter size. I cannot figure it out ??
There are two models of this lens. Model I has a 46mm filter thread and Model II has a 49mm filter thread. Details below:





You obviously have the Model II version. I hope that helps.

If Gerjan van Oosten says it is so, then it is so. And a quick check on Bookfinder reveals that the starting price for his great work as of today is £200.

That is about AU$263. It would take a lot more than that before I would even consider parting with my copy.

I lied. I have no intention of parting with my copy.

Could you post a photo of the lens?
Sure. Comes here.
But Ray Allen already solved my problem. The lens is the 2nd version of Takumar 1:2.8/105 with preset

Thank you so much. That helps.
Only now I see that the Lens Database must be wrong, since it says that Model II has got a 46mm filter thread - and not 49mm, as your photos shows.
I'll write the support.

If I’m not mistaken, these are dwarf almonds. K-5 II, Super-Takumar 1:2/35 (first version with 67mm filter thread) at f/2.8.

Question (and feel free to move this post if it should be elsewhere):

I'm shooting K-Mounts on an Olympus m4/3 body. If'n I wanted to dip my toe in the Takumar pond, what would be a good (and relatively inexpensive) starting point? Now, had I seen that gorgeous 85 a few days ago, that woulda been my starter. I have an Oly 50, and an SMC 55/1.8, so the 50/1.4 Tak would seem to be redundant, other than it's rep. Appreciate the input.

Appreciate the input.

The 55mm/1.8 and 55mm/2.0 Takumars are optically identical to your K Mount 55mm/1.8 so there wouldn't be much point I getting one of them. Personally I think the 50mm/1.4 is overrated and I prefer the 55mm lenses, but that's just my personal feeling and many others will disagree.

The fact that you were looking at an 85mm suggests that you prefer to go longer rather than wider, so the 105mm/2.8 would be worth considering. You should be able to get one for much less than an 85mm.

The cheapest way to go wider would be with the 28mm/3.5 or 35mm/3.5, which are both fantastic lenses (although not really very wide on M4/3). If you're a pixel-peeping sharpness obsessive, a well-maintained copy of the 35mm will blow you away.

The Takumars wider than 28mm are all a lot more expensive -- the wider you go, the more they cost. There are fewer around because they were more specialist focal lengths back in the Sixties and far fewer were made, so you have to pay for that rarity.

I almost never shoot with anything longer than 55mm, so I'll leave it for others to talk about the longer Takumars.

I would add that it depends on which qualities you are looking for in vintage lenses. If it is the diffuse and very subjective quality often described as “rendering”, could you point us to some examples that have what you would like to achieve?

I'm going to second Dartmoor Dave on the 105mm f/2.8. It has similar rendering to the 55mm f/2 and on your m4/3 it will be long enough to reach out across our deep western NC valleys.

Just a warning, having got caught myself, the Brexit show in the UK coupled with current trade wars seems to have garnered a lot more Customs and Excise people with an interest in photographic gear than there used to be, so if you are thinking of buying something from outside your area check out how much duty and any other tax they can think of applying might come to. I got stuck for Import duty and VAT (Value Added Tax) at 23% levied on both the goods and postage plus a €10 charge from the post office for collecting the taxes. I'm sure there's some keen type sitting in an office somewhere thinking of what more they can charge.
