[SOLD] M42 Tair 11-A (135mm, F2.8), Genuine Pentax M42 to K adapter

Legendary Soviet lens Tair 11-A (M42 screw mount,135mm, F2.8) - $115 shipped CONUS--> SOLD
Genuine Pentax Mount Adapter K (M42 screw mount to K) - $30 shipped **SOLD**

$130 shipped if both items purchased together! (Tair 11-A already sold!)


Tair 11-A comes with:
Lens
Original Zenit Tair-11A leather case
Original green and clear 55mm filters (The Tair 11-A was packaged with three filters, but my copy only came with two)
Front and rear caps
Lens has built-in hood
Shipping to CONUS

The Tair 11-A is one of the coolest lenses around. It's wonderfully unique, but it's a shame I just don't use it enough. The Tair has TWENTY aperture blades which make the lens produce amazingly smooth bokeh. I keep finding I pull out my Tammy 70-300 for telephoto work, and as a result, this lens is becoming lonely and wants a new home.
The lens is in good condition and came to me all the way from St. Petersburg, Russia. The glass is in perfect condition, the aperture blades move smoothly as they should. There are a few dust specks visible on the lens, and they may be inside. However, I have never had this effect my image quality. There are marks on scuffs on the body, but this lens has not been abused.

I bought the Pentax Mount Adapter K to use exclusively with the Tair 11-A (I had since given my screw mount lenses and Spotmatic to a friend ), and as a result, it hasn't seen too much use. It's in great condition, and comes with the original Pentax baggy and operating manual. **SOLD**

Photos in next post.

J-9's already been parted with, alas. Just traded it for the Kaleinar 150mm f/2.8 Pentacon 6 lens.
