[SOLD] 500mm 4.5 Tele-Takumar M42 Lens (US)

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
500mm 4.5 Tele-Takumar M42 Lens

Asking Price
Reduced to $375 USD Next stop is Ebay!

Item Location
Austin, Texas, USA

Item Description
For sale is a nice example of a Takumar with a very long reach!

This 500mm f4.5 Takumar is in excellent condition, only slight scuffs in the paint and a slightly bent aiming sight (see photos) keep this from being a high end collector's piece. NOTE: It is only the blade of the sight that is bent, the rest of the lens is perfectly fine.

I've been asked if this is lens is identified as SMC or a Super-Takumar. The front of the lens says simply "TAKUMAR 4.5 500" Nothing else than that. That said, some folks who have looked at test shots taken by this lens say the images are very nice indeed.

Fully functional, optics are excellent and free of marks and fungus. Blades are clean and working great. This lens offers a detachable screw-mount section that offers two things: 1. Ease of mounting the camera first to the section and then to the lens via a rotating collar. 2. An internal filter can be placed in this section.

Focus is smooth, tight and deliberate in the Takumar tradition. This IS a screwmount lens, requiring an adapter for use on modern DSLRs. I will throw in a third-party adapter for free.

Comes with correct metal lens cap and plastic rear cap, as well as the original hard case. Tripod collar is intact, clean and solid.

This is a very big lens and would be a challenge to use hand-held. However the images are classic Takumar in color rendition and sharpness.

PHOTOS SHOW A SPOTMATIC FOR DEMONSTRATION ONLY. THE SPOTTY IS NOT INCLUDED.
