Super Takumar 300 f4

Item Description
I have for sale a Super Takumar 300 f4 lens. The lens is in very good condition with no paint loss, crisp graphics and tight, snappy operation. The lens incorporates a built in lens shade and a built in tripod mount. Both are in good condition. The lens is also equiped with an Asahi Pentax UV filter, a metal Honeywell Pentax front cap and a plastic Takumar rear cap. The lens case has a condition problem on top where a seam is separating. You have to look for it to see it. The interior of the case is in good condition. I will also include with this sale a Vivitar 2X converter which takes this lens to 600mm at f8. The price is $165 which includes shipping. Shipping with be Priority Mail, insured, with tracking. Thank you.

Can that actually attach to a digital Pentax body? Looks like the tripod mount might get in the way.

I suppose you could loosen the tripod collar and let the lens spin inside it while you twist it onto the camera then tighten the collar once it is on. The TC would help as well to get the collar in front of the prism (I think that is what it is).

Tempting to hold me over for a little while....

I've never had any problem with the tripod ring on the Super Takumar 300/4.0. I use generic m42 adapters with the spring removed and the adapter torqued on to the lens with a K mount rear lens cap. Where this integral tripod ring becomes a problem is when I use a flanged m42 adapter ( no infinity, shorter MFD), I cannot access the lens release button on the K20D because the knob sits over the lens release button, simply rotating the tripod ring out of the way solves that problem. Some reviewers of this lens complained of it being heavy, I thought it light - it's the second lightest next to my Tamron SP 54B, 300/5.6 - and balances very well when hand held. littledrawe, if you are looking for a longish telephoto lens at a budget price, you can't go wrong with this one.
