Pentax Screwmount 85 F1.8 SMC TAKUMAR (58) *WITH CAPS 35MM SLR MANUAL FOCUS TELEPHOTO LENS - KEH.com

Something you don't see everyday. Someone PLEASE grab it. I simply can't afford it at that price at the moment, if it stays there it will be a very long suffering.

Then how to use C/Y mounted lenses on Pentax camera?
I know two ways, use Leitax adapter or convert it to a M42 mount then mount it on the K-mount via M42-K-mount adapter.

I personally found the Leitax option too expensive so I converted mine to M42 mount instead. Pretty easy.

The one for $959 is already K-mount, for what its worth. It is certainly to be expected that "dead" mount versions are cheaper...

Yeah me too. I had expected the same.

I have several Zeiss T* C/Y lenses but only converted one. The others I kept as is as I can use them on Canon and Nex bodies. Everytime I <butchered> a lens I just felt so bad

I have an excellent copy including the hood. It's a great portrait lens if your subject is patient enough to allow manual focus (I typically use LiveView for this). I would never want to part with it.

I would suggest you keep looking for a better price. I picked mine up through craigslist for $60 (my best bargain ever).
that sure is a bargain it will be awesome with the K-01 i think. I'll be patient.

Somebody bought the lens! Well I think that makes keh's pricing a bit unreasonable these days. -_-
