[SOLD] Super-Takumar 1:2 55mm (Worldwide) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Super-Takumar 1:2 55mm

Asking Price

Item Location
Montreal, Canada

Item Description
I am selling my first ever takumar lens. As soon as I used that lens, it was a love story. I previously used many pentax 50mm, but the takumar version are special IMHO. The focusing ring is amazing to use and as smooth as it gets.
It's an m42 mount (just in case...).

This lens is very good for beginner photographer that would like to pick up a cheap manual prime. It is a very good lens for portraiture as it blurs the background beautifully. The bokeh is very nice and the depth of field control you get can be very artistic.

My copy of this common lens is in good condition. It has some wear on the body and the previous owner engraved an identification number on it, as you can see in the pictures below. The front element look perfect to me, although it is possible that there is some micro scratch that I can't see. A few dust specks inside, but nothing serious. The rear element is in very good condition as well. The filter thread is in very good condition as the auto manual switch.

The lens comes with a generic screw on rear cap and a generic pinch fron cap.
