500mm Takumar f4.5 #3916068

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
500mm Takumar f4.5 #3916068

Asking Price
$480

Item Location
Indianapolis (United States)

Item Description
Condition: Optically a brilliant lens. Glass is clear, no scratches. There are several scuff, and light scratches on the barrel, even what looks like a touch of white paint. The two sights show some braising. No fungus. The previous owner had damaged the threads, probably with pliers; I got the threads retooled so that I can now get a Screw to K adapter on the lens without any trouble. As a result of the repair there are some nick marks near the back barrel end of the lens. The tripod foot likewise has marks on it.

I have used the lens on both Film and Digital bodies.Aperture changes smoothly. Original metal front cap included, rear screw cap not original.

This is a fun lens and I think it is a deal at this price. Must be used with large tripod and excellent tripod head (I used ball and Jobo). I have used it for about 9 years . I hate to part with it, but have purchased a 600mm lens so this one needs to find a new home. Works well with a 1.4X-L Pentax teleconverter (not included).

Bid with confidence. My ebay rating is 511 with 0 negative feedback (stemked). I am also one of the Pentax moderators over at Photo.net. I offer a full refund within 7 days save shipping fees. In case of return buyer pays return.

I would be happy to send additional images.

Looking through the Conditions I probably over estimated. 'Good' is more accurate.

Also note about two years ago I sold a 15mm f3.5 Pentax lens at this site.

I can vouch for the seller, with whom I have had an on-line acquaintance for several years. Also the lens: I had one once and it not only gave me very good results but taught me a lot about photography as well.
