Wow, that's the original Asahi Pentax lens - Takumar lens. The present lenses are no longer Takumar lenses. Very good lens. :thumbsup:

yes, i agree. i've got a 50 f1.8, 28 f3.5 and and a 135 f3.5. All inherited from my father-in-law. wonderful glass, super sharp and contrasty.


duhville,

no worries. my old girl has another old man to keep her company, but he's all busted up so he's basically a spare tyre for parts. hahaha :D

The Takumar lenses represent the best Pentax glass up to 1975, when the K-mount was introduced. It features an all-metal construction, including the focusing ring, and Pentax's signature SMC coating starting from the one shown in the picture "Super-Multi-Coated Takumar", which later productions of the same lens has its name shorted to just "SMC Takumar". Prior to that, the "Super Takumar" and "Takumar" officially does not make use of SMC although late productions of Super Takumars are said to be SMC coated.

With the introduction of the K-mount, the name "Takumar" has then been reserved for Pentax's cheaper line of non-SMC coated lenses, such as the Takumar-A 70-200/4, or even the relatively new autofocus Takumar-F 70-210/4-5.6 ED. Yes, it has got ED, but it hasn't got SMC, and it's marketed as a consumer lens.
