[SOLD] Super Tak 85mm f1.9 Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Super Tak 85mm f1.9

Asking Price
250 USD

Shipping Destinations
North America

Item Description
For sale is a very nice example of the legendary Super Takumar 85mm f1.9 lens. This copy was purchased from long-time Pentax Forum user Carpents last year, used a few times and otherwise stored carefully.

The lens is in excellent shape.
The body is very clean, with only the slightest brassing at the aperture ring. Glass is perfect, blades are clean and snappy. This lens has been well taken care of during its life, and is a fine working example of a legendary Takumar lens.

Comes with correct Honeywell Pentax cap and Takumar rear cap.

Sample images shot with this lens shot at f2.8 on a dreary, low contrast day. A couple are cropped images.

Looks fantastic

I like the K version of the lens a lot, although they do not have the same optical formula. Free bump

Some requests for sample images.... absolutely horrid day to shoot pictures to show off this lens, but I did what I could. All shot at f2.8 extremely overcast day.

Added them to the original post.
