[SOLD] SMC Takumar 1.4 50mm Bargain!

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
SMC Takumar 1.4 50mm Bargain!

Asking Price
US $60

Item Location
Washington DC (United States)

Item Description
OK, everyone knows the 50mm 1.4 SMC Takumar. It really is that great.

So here's your chance to own one for the low low price of $60! (They are currently going for $120-$150 on fleabay).

So why is it so cheap?

OK, first the bad: This lens is ugly. Well worn. Lots of scuffs. Dented (but still useable) filter ring. Two small holes in the name ring drilled by a previous owner, presumably so he could use a lens spanner to open it up and do repairs. And the caps are not original.

BUT, there is still plenty of good! The lens is in fine mechanical order. Focus is smooth, aperture ring clicks nicely, and aperture blades are clean and snappy. The glass is still in great shape, too, with no haze, fungus, or scratches. And I've even UV treated the lens to knock down the yellowing that these lenses are notorious for, so it will be as fast and sharp as it should be. I can even take sample pics to show you, if you'd like.

So, if performance is more important to you than looks, maybe this is the lens for you. Or maybe you have a broken copy with a nice exterior you can use to make the exterior match the interior.

A couple of nibbles, but no one ready to commit. Time to bump it back to the top!
