Pentax Takumar SMC 55mm f1.8 with metal hood and caps

Asking Price
$45.00 USD Incl shipping

Item Location
Canada

Item Description
Takumar 55mm f1.8. The lens does show signs of use with a little brassing in a few spots. The filter threads were slightly dented (see photos) and straightened. They will take filters but are a little tight. So I took the glass out of an old filter and added it to the lens. That way adding filters is easier and it offers a little shade from flare.

The hood included is quite rare. It's the matching hood for this model. Mounts easily to the lens with the glassless filter on it.

The previous owner scribed his name on the back near the mount. Doesn't effect the lens but it's there. Glass is clean and scratch free. Lens is very sharp. Aperture blades are snappy and clean. There is a little brassing on the front edges of the blades but not the rear. This hasn't been an issue with images or use. I've had the lens over 2 years and seen no problems with it.

Oh and to add, I have the original case that the hood came in. A little leather pouch to protect it from scratches. That's included

I can't believe this hasn't sold yet. I'd love to buy the hood for my SMC 50 1.4 that I just got from ebay. Hint Hint.

Looking at the focus ring, was that the last incarnation of that lens prior to K-mount? I have the older (I think) version and it makes a great portrait-length lens on the digital platform.

Yes this is the newest M42 version available. Other than being slightly longer, it looks like a twin to my SMC Tak50mm f1.4 which also has the rubber focus ring.

I'm now trying to decide what to do. 426 views and not a serious offer. I mean for $45.00 (about a net of $35.00 after shipping) it's not really worth putting on Ebay. I might just keep the lot if it does not sell by Sunday night. Surprised at that.

I'd buy it in a heartbeat if I didn't already have the K version Pentax 55 f/1.8.
