First - I have NO connection to this lens or the seller.

Just thought I'd pass on the info in case anyone is interested...

Be sure to check the mount tube. The M42 and SMC mounts are interchangeable and many M42 mount tubes were hacked to K-mount or Nikon or another mount (AP hacked most of their Takumar 500/4.5's to Nikon themselves). The lens itself isn't all that uncommon but you'll never get a NOS mount tube - they're all gone.

I had a Tak 500/4.5 for a while (bought here from a member) that was hacked to T-mount with a custom threaded insert. I was able to attach a T to K-mount adapter and it focused to infinity, but I think I was just lucky.
