Item Description

SMC VERSION IS SOLD

I have a pair of old beauties for sale now, the Pentax Super Multi Coated Takumar 135mm f/2.5, and the Pentax Super Takumar 135mm f/2.5. Both of them are in stunning, near-mint condition with no scratches or marks on the glass, no fungus, no oil on the aperture blades, and no other problems. There may just be a couple particles of exterior dust that show up in the pictures. They both turn smoothly and with the perfect amount of resistance. The A/M switches work fine and the blades are very responsive.

The body condition of the SMC is about 90% of original condition, and comes with original front and rear caps (the front has a cut-off cap-keeper on it). The body condition of the ST is about 95% of original, and comes with a generic Sigma front cap and generic rear cap. They both come with 58mm UV filters. The filter rings on both show a little more wear than normal, but that's just in comparison to the nearly-new condition of the rest of the bodies. Filters still screw on perfectly; no dings or dents.

Here are pictures of the SMC lens:









And here are pictures of the Super-Takumar:







I'm asking $200 for the SMC and $150 for the ST.

Bump with the reduced prices -- I don't know if I can go lower for rare and near-mint M42 SMC lenses.

Walt,

Are either of these identical optically with the SMC-K 135/2.5?

Thanks!

What number is on the A-M switch of the S-M-C lens? 43812 would indicate the 6 element version of the lens which would essentially be the same as the SMC K f2.5 version.
