Item Description
Spring is here and it's time to move on and get rid of my unused film equipment. With a heavy heart I am selling my most prized Pentax possession, the Macro-Takumar 50mm 1:1 preset lens, EX++, in original box. Yep, all ORIGINAL with branded Asahi Pentax styrofoam, manuals, case, strap, metal cap, filter, etc. This lens sat in storage for several decades, and is itching to be used (or added to a collection if that's more your thing). Blades and grip are pristine, dust is nearly nonexistent, focusing smooth. I was hard pressed to find any imperfections, but I know it has been mounted at least once due to the slight ring on the bottom (see pics). Still, I have never seen another copy of this lens in like new condition, nor have I ever seen it with the original box. Included in this package is a new set of Honeywell Pentax Auto Extension Tubes, also with original box and still wrapped in plastic, and an Asahi-Pentax Microscope Adapter for macro work in the science lab! I'm open to offers but the pricing takes into account the age (1964-1966) and rarity of this macro box set. Throwing in a good working condition Pentax Spotmatic SP film body. Thanks for looking!

This lens is one of the most artistic manual lenses that I've ever tried (second perhaps only to the 8-element Super-Tak 50mm f/1.4). It has a very unique star shape bokeh at ~f8 which fuels creativity. Here's some examples of what this baby can do, taken with a different, beat-up copy of this same lens.

Thanks for saying so! I am quite fond of it, but I have to let it go so I can fund other more pressing matters
