Item Description
Looking to trade my M37 Asahi Kogaku Takumar 500 f5. It is beautiful but takes too much space.
I don't know how common this lens was but it is the only copy I have seen. The review section here in Pentaxforums doesn't even have actual pictures of the lens. It has some faint haze around the edge, cleaning marks and scratches on the body. I have the original hood and case but the latter is in poor condition. The focusing mechanism is smooth, aperture opens and closes well, and the built-in hood opens and retracts as it should. The mount is removable. I believe there is an option to attach a M42 adapter to the lens directly but the one I have is M37. I've never used the lens so I don't know how it performs. In his book, F Sherfy reports that "it is a quality super telephoto lens" and that "AOC recommended the lens for use in animal and plant life observations as well as distant objects of importance". Nevertheless, I wouldn't buy/trade it to use it. I'm sure nowadays there are better options out there.

I'm looking for a silver 83 1.9 in M37 mount in similar condition. If that doesn't happen in a while I will be open to selling it.

PS - enjoy the pictures of the lens attached to the camera (or the camera attached to the lens) and with the small 50 3.5 next to it

I added a price but I still prefer a trade

I managed to get the 83mm this week. The 500mm Asahiflex is next on my list. This looks so nice.
