[SOLD] Super Takumar 85mm f/1.9


If I didn't own the SMC-M 85 f/2 and soon the Jupiter-9 85 f/2, I would never let
this one go, but... I just can't justify three 85's.

Super Takumar 85mm f/1.9 + Genuine Asahi Pentax M42 adapter . . . $250 + shipping

Usually the Pentax 85's need no introduction, but here's the forum review -->
Pentax Lens Review Database - 85mm F1.9

This is a superb portrait lens, and shows the 'magic' that the Pentax medium
telephotos (85mm's & 77mm) show - the sharpness, micro-contrast, specular
highlights and bokeh.

Lens comes with original hood and a genuine Pentax M42 adapter - if you want to
start collecting Takumars, you need the original adapter to ensure perfect infinity
focus. The Pentax adapters also can be taken off the camera with a fingernail
(others require a 'tool',) and never get stuck on the camera.

(Hi, potential overseas buyers - we can talk about 'gift' customs, shipping, etc via PM

Below are some shots taken with the lens:
