[SOLD] Takumar Bayonet 135mm f2.5 lens (US) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Takumar Bayonet 135mm f2.5 lens

Asking Price
$17.50 US

Item Location
Aurora, CO USA

Item Description

There was a listing last week with a title something like "This is not the inferior Takumar Bayonet version". But what if you want the inferior version? This listing is for you!

This lens will always be compared to the "real thing", whose name I won't even mention so this listing doesn't come up on a search. Ask about it and people who haven't owned either lens will tell you which is better. I bought this lens to see for myself, test results here. Really, not that bad. My opinion is, this lens is not a bad lens for the right price. I wince when I see these on eBay for $75 and up. Even in great shape, that's too much.

The hood on this lens is pretty battered, which initially makes the rest of the lens look bad. Other than that, the lens is in good shape. A filter screws on fine. I got the lens for exactly this price due to the hood condition, so I'm passing on the value.

Focusing is smooth, aperture blades are oil-free and snappy. They look a little worn; I'm not sure of the long-term effect of that. Glass is fungus and scratch-free. There are some cleaning marks right at the outer edge of the rear element. I'll include a photo of those shortly. Here are the rest, with larger versions here. Generic caps are included.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

Rock-bottom price, great photo of the front element, still unsold. Possibly too honest description?
