SMC Takumar 300mm f4 M42 Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
SMC Takumar 300mm f4 M42

Asking Price
150 CAD

Item Location
Nelson BC (Canada)

Item Description
Glass is very clean, no marks spots or fungus. Aperture snappy and clean. I bought this lens earlier last year, used it for a while then bought something faster. It came with a filter, a Hoya HMC UV and didn't seem to be used very much. Bit of usage marks. Someone engraved name on one of the rings, see photo.

Focus is smooth. It was tight when I got it, but loosened up with use. The auto/manual switch works fine. M42 adapter not included. Filter included as well as non original caps. Has a sliding hood and tripod ring.

Check out the reviews for this lens, pretty well describes my experience.

Note: To operate the auto/manual switch, a small pin on the shoulder below the threads needs to be depressed. To mount on K-5 with the tripod ring requires loosening the ring and screwing the lens into the mount.
