[ACQUIRED] 58mm f/2 Takumar (preset)

I'm looking for the 58mm f/2 Takumar preset (NOT the 55mm!). Any owners willing to part with this lens? Purchase complete with a Pentax AP or Pentax S will be considered.

The lens can be seen here

I have one.

Mine is very, very clean. No discernible paint loss on the barrel and it was cleaned and calibrated this summer. Distance scale in Meters. Silky smooth focus. Absolutely gorgeous.

Here it is pictured on a ZX-M.



The following photograph was taken with the above lens and body combination:



I like to use it a bit on my "AP" and "S" models. I prefer it on those bodies, but this is what the lens looks like on a modern body with inexpensive film (pretty sure that is Superia 100 judging from the red saturation).

It is without a doubt my favorite Takumar. The 55mm f/1.8 Auto-Takumar Zebra is a close second.

Why don't you PM me with an offer? As you are likely aware, this is pretty much the rarest of the normal presets of the era other than the elusive 55mm 1.8 PRESET.

woof!
