Item Description

*sale pending*
Super-Multi-Coated Takumar f1.4 50mm M42

Classic fast 50mm in nice condition.

Cosmetics: slight signs of use
Optics: Glass in good condition, no scratches. Some yellowing, but a UV light or sunshine will get rid of it, The usual dust specs inside.
Mechanics: Focusing works just as it should, A/M switch works, Aperture works well with nice clicks in manual but in auto-mode aperture blades move slowly. There's no oil on the blades so something else is causing this. I haven't investigated it further because it's a non-issue to DSLR-users (like me) since it'll be in Manual mode anyway.

Comes with both (non-original) caps

Some pics:

The rear element is flawless, sorry about the dust and white reflections

I want to bump for my friend. I did make inquiries about the lens as I am thinking of down-sizing from 55mm f/1.2 to this lens and get the money for my K20D repair and other upgrade needs. This is a great lens to sought after and I have good experience with safe packing and prompt shipment from seller.

@Ovim, I have to take a rain check on this one as I have decided to keep my Cosina 55mm f/1.2 and abandon my K5 upgrade path for the time being.
