Rare Macro-Takumar 50mm f4 preset (1:1) WORLDWIDE - PHOTOS ADDED

Item for Sale
Rare Macro-Takumar 50mm f4 preset (only one to do 1:1) WORLDWIDE

Asking Price
189.00 USD

Item Location
Kearney, NE (United States)

Item Description
Sample of images accepted into the Pentax Photo Gallery with this rare lens. And here is an image of this lens on a full frame Canon 5D.

Photos of the actual lens (fully extended). Racked in, it is a very compact lens in your bag :











This is a preset lens and is mechanically and optically in wonderful condition. It comes with both original caps (the metal "Takumar" front cap) and the original Asahi lens case with the green velvet interior. This is not only a relatively rare collector's item, but one that performs beautifully *(and is, i believe, the only Pentax macro that goes natively to a 1:1 reproduction ratio. The later 50mm f4 Macro designs only went to 1:2.

This is a lens you will be proud to have in your stable and with spring approaching in the northern hemisphere, you know you will be putting it to work almost as soon as you take it out of the box.

I recently picked up this lens and I really love it. The one you're selling is actually in much nicer condition than mine. Whoever decides to buy this is a lucky girl/guy!

I have this lens and cannot let it go. It seems like the 3D effect it produces is better than the other macros I have.

Here is a shot from someone else. And here is another one. Plus this one.

These are shot of mine: Here.
