[SOLD] Genuine M42 Screwmount to Bayonet Adapter + SuperTak 55mm f/1.8 (Worldwide)

When my uncle died a little over a year ago, I inherited his old Spotmatic and this lens. The Spotmatic wasn't worth salvaging, so I picked up the M42 adapter to play around with the lens on my K10D. Turns out I'm just not an M42 kinda guy, so...the adapter and lens are for sale.

This is a package deal only. I won't split them up.

SOLD USD$45 (incl shipping, see below) | M42 Adapter + Asahi Opt Co. Super-Takumar 55mm f/1.8

M42 Adapter

Original owner: Yes

Functional Condition: Excellent
Cosmetic Condition: Excellent

Genuine M42 to K screwmount to bayonet adapter (PTX 30120) purchased direct from Pentax roughly a year ago. Same as this one on the Pentax webstore selling for $38 ($31 + $7 S+H).

  • M42 screwmount to bayonet adapter

Super-Takumar 55mm f/1.8

Original owner: No

Functional Condition: Excellent
Cosmetic Condition: Fair

Front & rear elements each have some wee little blemishes. Interior shows no sign of haze or fungus, but there's some dust -- as one might expect on a lens of its age -- and in particular one rather noticeable spec. (see last pic below) Focus ring is smooth and well damped. Aperture blades are clean, dry, smooth, and snappy.

USA -- price includes FedEx Ground / Home Delivery to Paypal-confirmed addresses.

Canada -- Same as USA, but pay the price difference between the nearest USA metro area and buyer's location.
