Item Description
Super Multi-Coated Takumar 28mm f3.5, M42 screwmount lens.

Body in very good condition, with no scrapes or dings. Some very minor paintwear on the occasional edge, from age. The focus ring action is wonderfully smooth, just like a Takumar should be. The manual/auto aperture button works.

There is no oil on the blades, and they are clean. They open accurately, but the blades are sluggish (i.e, they don't open instantly to a new aperture, but can take a second to get there but it gets there). It hasn't been a problem for me as I am generally quite purposeful about what aperture I am using (for example, for street photography I don't change the aperture much) and also don't mind a very slight delay. However, it may affect you depending on your style of shooting.

No scratches, no haze, no lens element separation. A bit of the usual dust inside, but this doesn't affect pictures. This is the super multi-coated version, not just the Takumar version; it's a classic metal lens.

I'm selling it because I have another 28, and I have too many old lenses (I know, how is that possible...)

You can use this on modern Pentax's, or other DSLRs such as Canon or Sony NEX, with the right adapter.

I will include a Pentax front lens cap. I dont have the rear cap.

I did a search for completed ebay listings, and this lens went for prices upwards of $100. I'm not expecting that amount because of the sluggish blades so Im selling it here on PF for $50 plus $15.00 shipping in North America. This item is in used vintage condition and sold as is. I've used this with great results on a K-X DLSR, but have not tested it on a film camera.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?
