NEW PRICE: Cult Classic SMC K 135mm f2.5 (6 element) with HOOD & CASE

Item for Sale
Cult Classic SMC K 135mm f2.5 (6 element) with HOOD & CASE worldwide

Asking Price
199.00 USD

Item Location
Kearney, NE (United States)

Item Description

http://www.lightstalking.com/7-reasons-why-prime-lenses-are-better-than-zoom...ur-photography

This is not just ANY PRIME. This is the K version of the screwmount Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 135mm f2.5 VERSION 2. Superb optical design with terrific sharpness & contrast. The peak of the Pentax 135mm design. (Only the 135mm f1.8 is pricier, and it is of dubious VALUE - for the money.)

Don't confuse this with the Bayonet Takumar version. This is the SMC coated K mount, renowned by many as the pinnacle of Pentax K-mount build quality. This is regarded as the finest 135mm lens that Pentax built. It's combination of speed (2nd fastest ever built by Asahi/Pentax), superior sharpness, color and contrast... this is one that should be in every Pentaxian's arsenal. (I will never be without at least one. )

Here are the versions of the 135mm f2.5 made by Pentax:

Screwmount:
1) Super Takumar and S-M-C Takumar Version 1
2) S-M-C Takumar Version 2 (6 element design)

K-mount
3) SMC K 135mm f2.5 (6 element design)
4) Non-SMC & confusingly named "Takumar Bayonet" version which you can
find almost anywhere for $50/60.

I am offering (3). It is the same optical design as (2) but not to be confused with the vastly inferior (4).


This is one for those that are picky about their used lens purchases. It includes the original caps, original hood, and original case! (See pics below)

See images created with this lens that were accepted into the Pentax Photo Gallery HERE.





FINAL PRICE REDUCTION (was $259) $199 plus actual shipping. I will be happy to ship worldwide to Pentax Forum members with good Marketplace feedback. Shipping method with tracking to your address is required. I would prefer not to use Paypal unless absolutely necessary. If you wish to pay with credit or debit card, I can issue you a Square invoice that will allow you to easily do so.

This is just one of the three gorgeous SMC K lenses that I am selling today. I also have:
Legendary 28mm f3.5 (with original hood and cases) (sorry 28mm is SOLD) and a
SMC K 200mm f4 with original hood and case (sorry 200mm is SOLD)
I will be happy to combine shipping.


Here is a cropped image that I took with this lens on my K-5 with the O-GPS1 (stack of several images)

Bump...and FINAL price reduction.
Seriously wondering if people realize WHAT LENS this is.
The K-mount version of the S-M-C Takumar 135mm f2.5 Version 2.
This price is a superb deal, particularly for the condition and including the hood and original case.
Snag it for yourself.

I've had one for years that had a dinged filter ring that I dowel-hammered out. I guess I want pretty, too.
