[SOLD] SMC Takumar 200mm/4

I've trying to lighten my load quite a bit to make room for a nice tele prime (maybe F300/4.5...suggestions are welcome), and this lens will find a new home.

Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 200/4
Screw Mount (M42) -- will require a M42 to Pentax K mount adapter.

SN 7483483

Cosmetically excellent. A couple spots or wear, most noticeable on the aperture manual/auto selection lever (paint worn off) Also some very small paint wear on edges of the focus ring. But as you can see from the photos, it really does look beautiful.

The glass is very clear and clean, maybe a couple specs of dust but nothing that will affect your images. The aperture is just barely slow. This definitely doesn't matter for use with a kmount camera since it's manual stop-down aperture. I'm not sure if it would affect use on an old screw mount open-aperture metering camera or not. It's not real slow and doesn't have any oil or junk on it...i'm guessing it's just gotten a bit tight over the years and needs to be exercised.

Includes front/rear caps and a freebie 58mm filter (may have some light scratches). I also have the leather case for it and it's in OK shape.

$70 plus shipping ($10 in the US...I'll use a flat rate box for this one).

Very nice price!

The SMC Tak 200 f/4 is truly a gem - so easy to nail focus, very, very sharp. I've shot a lot of wonderful images with this lens.

I've taken some nice shots with this particular copy of the lens as well. Here's a couple examples:
