[SOLD] SMC Takumar 50mm 1.4 and 55mm 1.8

I have these two that I got with some other things that I don't need, anyone interested? I'm thinking something like $85 for the 50 and $50 for the 55. Both are in very good condition some light marks, but much better than most lenses of this vintage that I have seen. I'll try to get some pictures up later.

I forget to mention that the 55 includes the Takumar hood

I also have a Honeywell Pentax Spotmatic F for $30, or $20 with one of the above lenses.

Edit:

Now on ebay,

Spotmatic with SMC 55 1.8

Sorry this is the SMC Takumar which is an M42 screw mount, therefore completely manual.

Is the 50mm nearly mint? I have two, both perfect optically, but one has brassing and the other is damaged mechanically. I'd really like to have a nicer sample

I have one that doesn't include the Takumars, but you definitely don't want to see it

I have attached a few pics of the 50. I would call it very good not mint. Most of the marks are on the back of the lens (removing from the camera?) and one area of the aperture ring shows wear. There are some other small paint chips/marks but the ones shown in the pics are by far the worst. Caps shown in the last pic are included.

That's exactly the type of condition I'm looking for, but I prefer the older SMC Takumars over the later ones.

eekBay it is, I guess
