Takumar 50mm f1.4 Super Tak with case and caps

Asking Price

Item Description
A very nice lens. It does show a little of the classic yellowing that all these lenses show, but not nearly as much as some I've seen. I put it in the window (wrapped in tin foil) for a couple of weeks and that made the glass quite clear.

There are some cosmetic wear marks on the lens. It comes with a generic push on cap and a screw rear cap. Also a worn but solid case to protect it. Overall a nice kit.

This is one of the better lenses I've shot with. But I also have 5 50's (including other Taks) and it doesn't get much use. Beautiful bokeh as the example shows.
Easy lens to meter and quite accurate with the green button.

Tough to price. The reseller market seems a bit erratic at about $105 to over $150 plus shipping.

I think my asking price is a good deal for a great lens.
Blades are clean and oil free. Minimal dust and no functional issues with the lens.

How is the action of the focus ring? Smooth? Gritty?

Smooth as new Finn. The lens does show a little paint wear but other than that, it's in excellent working condition. The focus ring is not tight nor is it loose. Just as it should be from near to infinity.

Having owned the later m42-version of this lens, I can say it beats the s*** out of the FA50 in terms of image quality

Good luck!

Revised: I found the orginal metal cap for the lens. The Plastic push on that is shown in the listing will be replaced with the original Asahi Pentax metal lens cap.
