[SOLD] Asahi Takumar 135mm f/3.5 Chrome

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Asahi Takumar 135mm f/3.5 Chrome

Asking Price
Sold

Item Description
Ashai Takumar 135mm f/3.5 Chrome. M42 screw mount. This lens is about 50 years old - I think it's from 1957 but I'm not positive. Comes with the original Takumar 3.5/135 case. Has a 46mm Yashica UV filter and Pentax lens cap. Rear cap is Vivitar.

This is a completely manual lens. It has a preset diaphragm with two aperture rings in front. Dual helicoil construction, means the aperture rings will not move when you set focus. You preset the aperture with the chrome aperature ring having click-stops, then set focus, and lastly close the diaphragm with the black aperature ring before shooting.

For a 50 year old lens, it is in fairly good shape. There is a some dust in the optics but it does not seem to effect images. I cannot see any fungus.

I just don't use this lens. This lens is quite rare and I hope it would be picked up by a collector.

Thanks, Peter, I did win it

I'm looking forward to trying this out. I have a preset 200mm 3.5 and love it, it's so much fun to use that I end up taking it everywhere with me, even if it's really not called for...
