Tele-Takumar F1:6.3 300mm M42 Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Tele-Takumar F1:6.3 300mm M42

Asking Price
100.00 AUD

Item Location
Bamaga (Australia)

Item Description
Standard Asahi Pentax Tele-Takumar F1:6.3 300mm M42

Twelve Aperture blades - a pre-set aperture ring lens.

Original 58mm Asahi Pentax metal front cap, generic plastic 49mm rear cap, original tripod mount and locking collar, original metal hood which is reversed on lens for stowing.

Cosmetically some very small chips of enamel on leading edges of cap, aperture and focus rings. Small amount of dust in lens commensurate with age. Glass is in very good condition, no scratches or haze or mould - this is a sealed single focal distance tele lens, not a zoom so no visible dust inside. Some marks on the base of the tripod mount as can be expected. All up a very handsome lens.

340 degrees of very silky focus throw. Close focus distance of 5.5m or 18ft. Can be prone to fringing when isolating branches or flowers against the sky but this is easily fixable in post and is normal for a lens of this age.

An example shot from this actual lens (Check out that Takumar bokeh):

Aperture blades move snappily and both aperture rings move and work as designed.

Haven't used for months so need to move it on. Note camera in pics below does not come with lens - just included for illustrative purposes.

Send PM if interested.

To put in a good word: Had one for my Spotmatic; compact & light weight; very good IQ; works well with a Canon 500D close-up filter (the minimum focusing distance of the 300 is it's weakest feature).
