[SOLD] Another Low Budget Zoom Takumar-F 70-210mm (US) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Another Low Budget Zoom Takumar-F 70-200

Asking Price

Item Location
Missouri, United States

Item Description
Submitted for the disapproval of some. One Takumar-F 70-200mm f4-5.6 auto focus zoom. The lens does have the auto aperture feature and is pretty heavy for so much plastic on the outside.
A previous owner glued a glassless filter ring to the front lens ring because of damage to the focusing ring. By attaching the filter ring to the top of the focus ring it allows the additional attaching of any correct size lens filters or covers. Here, let the pictures show you what I am talking about:

See what I am on about? That little lens filter with no glass in it on the end of the focusing hood?
Well anyway... The lens otherwise is in average condition and operates fully as an auto focus lens should. You just get something a little extra for your money.
I have plenty of lenses in this focal range and bought this one with a few others. I tested it, shot a few pictures with it on my K10 and decided I can live without it. So if there is anyone out there who does not want to spend very much money on a somewhat average quality AF zoom lens, now's your chance. 15 bucks. What do you say?

Thank you for looking and have a day!

Correction made to focal length. This is a 70-200mm. Really not a bad lens. Should I show you some pictures in a few days? If someone does not buy this lens I will be forced to.

Here are a few older reviews from around the forum:

All personal messages have been replied to. Thank you for your interest.

And now... Bump!

If I didn't already own one, I would buy it at that price. You can find comparison shots of my copy of this lens and a 50-200mm here:
