Auto-Takumar 35mm F/2.3 M42 screw mt. Clean, clear glass. Reduced!

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Auto-Takumar 35mm F/2.3 screw mount lens

Asking Price
120.00USD

Item Location
Pennsylvania (United States)

Item Description
The Classic early, fast 35mm wide angle lens. Auto-Takumar 35mm f/2.3 in m42 screw mount.

Fully tested and working as it should, though the grease in the Focusing helicoid is quite stiff making it hard to focus in colder temperatures.
Aperture is snappy and responsive.
Glass is very clean for a fifty plus year old lens. There are two scratches on the front element which I have highlighted in the photos. I have seen NO evidence that these scratches impact images made with the lens. Lens body shows much finish wear.

I’m including a short lens hood and non-original front and rear caps with the lens.
Selling only because I purchased a second copy of this lens in a camera deal. This lens creates great images and deserves to be used!

See comparison test I posted with images from this lens vs. the Super Takumar 35/3.5 in the Takumar Club thread post #16997

Reduced to $120.00. shipping in United States included

Bump. Do not be afraid of the cosmetic aspects of this lens! Iíll take a return if you donít like how it performs, your only cost will be return postage. I have another one which came on a AP I purchased. That is the only reason Iím parting with this lens.
