[SOLD] Takumar 300mm SMC - good to excellent Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Takumar 300mm SMC - good to excellent - Price Reduction

Asking Price

Item Description
I have enjoyed using this lens as it is a pleasure to focus and gives me sharp images from 5.6 onward, brutally sharp at f8 and higher. I recently purchased a tokina 400mm SD lens and it is now time to reluctantly pass this jewel to someone else. (My better half is also getting frustrated with my burgeoning lens collection which I must rationalize)

I prefer using takumars on my K10D rather than K or M lenses as I can use aperture priority mode.
  • The lens comes with a generic front cap and a 'takumar' rear cap. The case has some scuffs but is in good-excellent condition.
  • There is no tripod mount
  • The optics are clear with a few small specs of internal dust.
  • The focus is smooth and the aperture clicks positively, shuts down quickly, and has no oil or other visible defects. There is an engraving just below the manual-auto switch.
  • The built in lens shade has scuffs and dings but this in no way affects its function. It slides smoothly and stays put.

I would be happy to email you more pictures taken with the K10D and this lens and for now, have attached images of a hawk shot handheld at f8 (out of a car window) and a blue heron shot at f6.7
