[SOLD] Topcor 135mm f/3.5 converted to Pentax - seeing is believeing!

This is your chance to grab the excellent Topcor 135mm f/3.5 on a Pentax DSLR or Film camera for $100.
The lens has retractable hood. The body and the lens is in mint condition, focus is smoother than a Takumar.

Look at this beauty:


This is how it looks on my K10D:




The lens has been converted to Pentax K-mount by me. It has extraordinary bokeh. Seeing is believing:

Sure, It's not too pretty but it does the job. I only see it between removing the cap and putting the lens on the camera

Yes, she does. It took me a whole Saturday to modify it.

PM sent. How many aperture blades does this baby have? And does the lens "lock" into place? I modified a M42 lens into K mount as well, but couldn't get it to lock.

It has 6 aperture blades and yes, it locks perfectly, you have to press the release button on the camera to take it off.
