That's the early version, I am pretty sure.

The Super-Takumars have a yellow coating (and that's what you're seeing), so that's pretty normal. That's not the same as yellow discoloration of the thoriated lens elements which happens in the 7-element versions only).

Rest assured: you have the 8 element version!

Agree with everyone. The rim of the rear element protrudes beyond the metal guard, which is another telling factor (in addition to the other indicators).

The serial number is also in the zone (although is near the cusp) - enjoy the lens ;)

That third photo shows that you have an eight elements version; the other versions dont portrude nearly as much. FWIW mine is totally yellowed as well.

Love my eight elements. The contrast and bite wide open is amazing.
