[SOLD] SMC Takumar 85mm f/1.8 Lens + Matching Hood

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
SMC Takumar 85mm f/1.8 Lens + Matching Hood

Asking Price
$360

Item Description
Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 85mm f/1.8 lens in very nice overall condition. Glass is clean with minimal dust, no fungus. Aperture is snappy and focus is smooth. Outside there is a little wear and scratches in the paint, but it seems to have been well taken care of. Comes with OEM metal hood in pristine condition.

**Update to description:
One thing I noticed when taking the pictures is there is a very slight "push-in" at the front of the barrel. If you look at a front view of the lens you can see it right next to the "AHI" in ASAHI. I had to do a triple-take, because I've been able to mount and remove both the UV filter and the hood with no problem. I'm guessing at some point it was bumped while in a bag, because there are no scuffs or scratches there. Otherwise the lens is in good condition cosmetically as the pictures show.

Will consider trading (+/- $) for a super-wide zoom like the DA 12-24 or Sigma 10-20, or a wide-normal zoom like the DA 17-70, Tamron 17-50, or Sigma 17-70, Pana LX3 or Canon G10, or a fast AF tele prime like the FA 135 2.8. Yeah I know I'm all over the place here

Here are some pics with it (K10D):

I just l purchased a lens locally from raybird, and he takes good care of his equipment and is very fair.

So for a good deal locally here is a free bump for you!

Added pics of the lens; also updated the description to reflect a slight irregularity that I found.
