Item Description
Pentax Auto-Takumar 85 1.8 -

In absolutely in beautiful condition. This semi-rare gem has been well kept and takes great portraits.
Condition: I rated it as excellent and I would say the body is in 97% condition. There are a few very small hard to see marks in the finish. The threads have a few spots from hoods or filters coming on and off. The glass is clean except it has a little bit of dust. A few dust spots are big enough to see (as I showed in pictures). They do not impact the image quality.

Performance: I had DC Shooter clean and lube the lens a little over year ago. It is sweet, and is a smooth operator. The lens does portraits well, has a smooth rendering and has an old school look to it. The focus is smooth, the aperture clicks nicely, no issues here at all.

The Package: It comes with what I suspect original Takumar cap and rear screw on cap. They are pretty clean especially for their age. It comes with the original case which is in terrific condition considering the age. It also comes with a 55mm hood and a 55mm Hoya UV(O) filter. The hood is perfect for APS-C shooting. I would have loved to find an original hood, but they aren't marked like the newer takumar hoods. So it comes with the lens, caps, 55mm metal hood, Hoya filter, and original case.

I am also including a genuine Pentax M42 to K Adapter if purchased this weekend!

Price: $350 shipped in the US. It is as good as it is going to get considering the age and rarity of the lens itself. Packaged with original case - pretty swell here. I'm selling because I am downsizing my lens collection and I can get by with my SMC Takumar 85 1.9.
