Asking Price
See Listing

Item Location
Maryland (United States)

Item Description
Super Takumar (Rare SMC First Run Varient)

This lens needs no introduction, classic glass that produces stellar results. This copy is one of the more rare first run SMC variants with the updated coatings, these were produced right before the release of the SMC Takumar with the different grip (the last of the famed Takumar labeled 55's).

Near perfect condition, glass is flawless, snappy oil free blades, NEAR collectors quality condition. Comes with the original rear cap and a semi rare 55 1.8 Case.

[See last 2 photos for coating verification, pink'ish being the smc coating]

$55.00 (Shipped To CONUS Only)

[Spots are from dust from my house]


[Coating verification - left being standard takumar coating vs the more updated multi-coated version which is the one for sale]

Forgot I still had this - it is still available. This thing is as close to "perfect" as you are going to find for this lens, the only place it shows any thing that notes it has been used is on the bottom of the base (turn marks from mounting). Will sell for $50 shipped to CONUS...
