Asahi-Kogaku 50mm f/3.5 Takumar (with adapter to PK) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Asahi-Kogaku 50mm f/3.5 Takumar (with adapter to PK)

Asking Price
EUR 150 (includes shipping w/w)

Item Location
Dalfsen (Netherlands)

Item Description
Here's your chance to own and shoot with Asahi's first 35mm SLR lens from the mid-50's. This was the standard lens for the Asahiflex. It's based on the Tessar and designed by Ryohei Suzuki, chief optical engineer at Asahi Optical Co., Ltd.

Clean glass, absolutely smooth focusing (hey, it's a Takumar after all!), but some bright marks on the (otherwise very nice!) barrel. It's made of very heavy chromed brass. The original chrome AOCo lens cap is still there. There's no original back cap but I will include a M37 to M42 adapter which is mounted inside a M42 to PK adapter, on which a PK cap is installed. So the buyer of this nice lens is ready to use this on her/his camera.

Price: EUR 150 (shipping to anywhere in the world included).

(Please note that the adapter does not retain infinity -just like the original Asahiflex adapter- but it comes close).

Please also see my samples I made with this very lens below.
