[SOLD] Super Takumar 85mm f/1.9

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Super Takumar 85mm f/1.9

Item Description
Super Takumar 85mm f/1.9 ( $240.00 REDUCED $180
I am replacing this lens with the Super multi-coated 1.8. I've only had it for a few short week but have fallen in love with Takumars now. I just love how buttery smooth the focus is on these things. At least the two I have anyway.
The glass is very good. There are a few speck of dust inside and a few very light cleaning marks on the outside but neither of these issues will in no way effect quality. The aperture blade are clean and snappy as the ring clicks freely with no sticking or looseness. And as I stated before I love the focus.
Cosmeticly it does show some paint loss, mostly on sharp edges. No dings or dents. The case is a bit worn. The bottem is coming lose but I think it could be glued real easy.
The great color rendering of this 85 and the FL is great for street/candid because it can give you some distance but also good for head shots.

Price reduced.
Looks like I may have to hang on to this one if I don't get any takers. I guess it wouldn't be so bad though to have a back up for my 1.8.. I do love these lenses.

I'd get it ... but I already have one ... and I understand the quality of this lens.
For what it is ... and what it does ... this is a decent price.

Okay, you guys are killing me.

Another price drop to $180 WOW!!

I just need the money pretty bad. I just payed $230 for it a little over month a ago so its a bit of a loss for me.

I would buy it immediately, but the customs are killing the deal.
Is there a way to avoid the customs and taxes?? to EU
