Auto Takumar 55mm F1.8 Zebra
Posted By: aoeu, 06-01-2016, 02:09 PM

Ebay from Japan:Price: US $224.00 with free shipping to the US.
Our database says about this lens:

Notes
Very rare. Only sold by Sears with a rebadged Pentax (Tower 29). Optics could be same as the 1:1.8/55

From Japan.
I'm not collecting a museum.
This might be actually rare. Seller may or may not be aware of the non standard M42-K mount adapter.

From what I gathered last week before bidding on one, near $150 is at the high end of the range . The one I bid on went for $169.

Recently paid $+/-325 (incl. shopping from OZ) for a spotless AT55/1.8 Zebra and Asahi Pentax K body. Truly museum quality.

I think you posted a pic of the lens if not the duo, right. Very nice.

It's pretty neat, yeah. I want to use my old cameras so I generally don't buy collectibles - but this one was just too tempting.

There's a photo of both on a another K thread somewhere.

It's a great looking lens. Seeing yours (at least I think it was yours) is the major reason I bid on one. I had been looking at 55/1.8s and seeing that one pushed me over the edge.
