Does this lens exist?

I was at our local camera store going through their Pentax box o' lenses and found a lens I know nothing about. I copied down what was written on the box and it said.."Super Takumar 135 - 200 3.5- 5.6 lens." I tried to research it on this forum and found no information on it. Did I copy it down correctly or? Thanks

Not to be smug but you held it in your hands, so, other than in some existential definition, it exists...

But here is a thread on the same subject.

I think what you saw was the text from a lens hood. It says "Takumar 1:3.5 135mm 1:4 150mm 1:5.6 200mm Asahi Opt. Co., Japan 49θ". The text means that the hood works with three lenses: the 135mm f3.5, the 150mm f4 or the 200mm f5.6, all of which have a 49mm filter thread. I'm not sure whether they were originally sold or boxed separately from the lenses, but today you'll see them separated frequently.

Takumar lenses are almost always labeled on the trim ring around the front element. There might be some exceptions that I can't recall right now.
