[SOLD] Super Takumar 150mm f/4.0 (M42) (US/CAN)

Item Location

Item Description
Super Takumar 150mm f/4.0 (M42) - Very nice, extremely clean screwmount with case. Also included is a generic rear cap and a vintage Vivitar filter that I use as a lens cap for this lens.

This lens has very little paint loss due to handling - in fact I only see any at all on the auto/manual switch. It is in excellent condition all around. Aperture "snappy" with no oil or other fouling, focus mechanism is well damped and smooth, aperture ring clicks smartly into detents. Auto/manual switch is operational and positive. Very sharp lens.

Please let me know if you have any questions.









Photos taken with the lens... not the greatest shakes, but these are intended to demonstrate that under not the greatest condition, I was able to get pretty darned sharp photos. These were all taken at ISO 640, with a K10D, in a dimply lit room, with lash, hand held at 1/180 at about f/8.0. All were taken at about the minimum focusing distance ~ 5 feet or so.

This is a superb, highly underrated lens. I didn't even know about it until I saw it in the lens review database, it seems to be relatively rare:

S-M-C/Super Takumar 150mm F4 Lens Reviews - Pentax Lens Review Database

Check out the sample photos taken by Jsherman to get an idea just how sharp this lens is. I have a feeling this lens would no longer be available if people actually knew about it.

Also, bump for a superb seller.
