[SOLD] Asahi Super-Multi-Coated M42 Takumar 135mm f/3.5 with leather case

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Asahi Super-Multi-Coated M42 Takumar 135mm f/3.5 with leather case

Asking Price
$45

Item Description
This is an excellent completely manual lens that I originally picked up off eBay. It's all metal and hefty, but obviously of great build quality you don't find anymore with today's plastic lenses.

The optics are clear and the only imperfections are very small areas where the paint has been chipped off; these have been retouched with permanent marker. Blades are still snappy. You will need an M42 adapter to fit this to any K mount camera.

Images are very sharp, even wide open. There is slightly more pronounced chromatic aberration wide open (and a tad bit of softness), but that immediately goes away when stopped down half a stop.

You will get the lens, slide on cap (which I like a lot), and the original leather case (minus straps), but not the circular polarizer shown in the images below.





Samples:

Manually focused sports! You can even see the lint flying off the ball in the larger image.


Handheld at 1/8th of a second!

If you would like to use the Live.com eBay cashback, I'd be happy to put this out as a Buy It Now item for you, but I will raise the price to cover fees (though you will still save money).

Please send me a private message if interested in the item!
