Item Description
This is a very nice copy of the legendary and fairly rare Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 85 f1.8. This lens is not mint but is, I think, in unusually nice condition for its age. The glass and blades are clean. The aperture ring is smooth and snaps firmly into the stops. The focus ring on this lens, more than on any of the many Takumars I've owned, is almost sensual; buttery smooth but with just enough resistance to keep you careful. There are minor spots of paint loss on the barrel but overall it is a nice glossy black. The barrel looks newer than most vintage Takumars. The lens comes with a Pentax squeeze front cap, a Takumar rear M42 cap and a UV filter. If you've always wanted one, here you go!
