Takumar 70-210 F/4-5.6

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Takumar 70-210 F/4-5.6

Asking Price
50.00 USD

Item Location
Nebraska (United States)

Item Description
Takumar-F 70-210 zoom lens - I bought this about 1.5 years ago so I could take a small long zoom lens with me on my trips. My tamron 70-200 2.8 is about 3x the size so this little guy is really compact for what it is. I haven't used it much at all.

The difference between the Takumar 70-210 and the Pentax is the SMC coating. Optically, it is pretty darn swell for the price and size. It beats the pants off the rendering of the 50-200. I'm not going to talk the FF part because if you can afford the K-1, you should be using something a little nicer.

Condition - Excellent overall. Body and glass is pretty nice and clean. Internally there is a few dust spots. Everything works just fine. Comes with caps on both sides.

$50 shipped in the US.
International with good feedback PM for shipping rate/price.

I just shot with this today and it is a spectacular lens for the price. Super fast AF and has really good colors/sharpness to it. $55 - it is a great deal.

Anybody want a full frame, low cost lens? $50. Much better than the DA 50-200.

I have had this lens for about two years and I can honestly say that I am more pleased than I had ever imagined. It is very sharp, its color rendition is excellent and its bokeh and auto focus are also excellent. If interested you can see my photos taken with it in the Takumar Club. It is the only Takumar lens that I have. The price on this lens is a steal. I hope this is alright with Admin., to post this message here. Thanks,
Tony

I don't see a PM from you, Rob. Tony thanks for the testimony. It really is a great lens. The other Takumars (A and F series) aren't good. This one is the exception and is far superior to the DA 50-200 WR.

Okay, PM sent. Really.
My niece wants my Sigma50-150. This will keep her happy, at least until I can go FF.
