Item Description
Ramping up to buy another large format camera, I've decided to seriously clean out my photographic gear, which unfortunately means making some hard decisions. One of those decisions is that I'm selling my Takumar Bayonet 135mm F/2.5.

I don't really want to get rid of this lens, but it's the old problem of a lens that stays in the camera case and never gets used. I suspect it has a lot to do with the lack of an A on the aperture ring, as I tend to use my digital Pentax cameras a lot.

The Takumar Bayonet 135mm has an unfortunate reputation, and while I find that it's true that it does flare quite badly in bright light, as long as you use a lens hood, this lens produces beautiful, sharp images with excellent Bokeh. In the realm of truly fast 135mm lenses, the Takumar Bayonet's fast f/2.5 aperture is equalled only by a few very rare, very expensive F/2s and f/1.8s, both of which cost orders of magnitude and then some more than this.

My Takumar Bayonet has excellent glass, and the entire rig was completely CLAd by Eric less than 2 years ago. She isn't pristine, but she is optically and mechanically perfect!

I will ship to USA destinations for free, International destinations for actual shipping cost over $15.

Buyer will recieve a rear cap, front cap, cap leash, and rubber lens hood along with the lens.

Pictures will follow this evening.

I'll mention that normally that lens even comes with a built-in lens hood, so no need for any extra accessories.

The built-in hood is present, but the included rubber hood is better.
