[SOLD] FS: pristine Super Takumar 135mm f/3.5

.


Near mint Super Takumar 135mm f/3.5 is up for grabs.

The super Taks are the smoothest focusing MF lenses available for Pentax, they're all metal,
beautiful pieces. Among the sharpest lenses available for Pentax are the Super Takumars.

The 135 f/3.5 is small and relatively light - easy to throw in the bag when you want to
make sure you have a sharp moderate telephoto for close-in people shots, tight telephoto
shots with a good FOV, while maintaining a very high level of detail and sharpness.

Here's the summary quote from mflenses.com:

QuoteQuote:
Asahi Pentax Super Takumar 135mm f/3.5 Lens Review

Very well built full metal construction lens, real competitor of Carl Zeiss Jena Sonnar 135mm
f/3.5. Sharp even at wide open, very good performer in all areas. Easy to catch right
focus,very usable focal length. Can I say more ? No, just a perfect lens one of the best in
short telephoto range.

I own one of these, have recently picked up another bought in a package deal, and am letting
that one go. As you can see below, it's in perfect shape.

Sale includes original hood, original leather case, and a Hoya 49mm UV filter in new condition.












These were taken by this lens this morning - slight breeze & overcast, so most of
them are at ISO 800 (these magnolia blooms have been my standard lens IQ test this week! :












$75 shipped - shipping overseas or to Canada will be a bit extra.

I've just sold a smc tak just like this and still have a super tak. both seem to be optically identical.. i really hated letting the smc model go. both are so superb just to handle. it's like they were made to go to the moon. the smc i sold showed no sign of use either..

Yeah - I don't think I'll be selling my 1st copy, but I don't need two

Here's a quick snapshot taken today with this lens, ISO 800 - Good portrait lens, he didn't
notice the camera like he does with my 50mm:
