[SOLD] [Worldwide] Takumar 500mm f4.5 lens in M42 Screwmount Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Takumar 500mm f4.5 lens in M42 Screwmount

Asking Price
$425.00 USD

Item Location
Cedar Park, TX

Item Description
Asahi Takumar 500mm f4.5 telephoto lens in M42 screwmount - completely manual lens. Great overall condition - some very minor scuffs on the lens barrel, but the glass is clear and fungus free. The aperture blades are oil-free and clean. Comes with built in lens hood and tripod collar - also the original case in remarkably good condition. Heavy lens - about 8 pounds or so.

There are a couple of issues - the lens is prone to purple fringing in high contrast situations. Also, the rear "sight" is loose (I can't figure out how to get to the screws to tighten 'em) and slightly bent. Did I mention that the lens is heavy??!!

Also, I have to ask y'all to forgive me - I made the classic mistake of not cleaning the dust off prior to taking the photos - and the lens has already been packed for shipment. Oh, the tripod in the photos is not included.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

Are you selling or trading this item?
