Pentax Asahi Super Takumar 300mm F/4 Prime Tele Photo Lens in M42 Screw Mount with Pentax Case and Lens Caps
Here we have a Pentax Asahi Optical Co Super Takumar 300mm F/4 prime telephoto lens in universal screw mount M42 with metal Pentax lens hood, lens cap, and case. It is in great shape and is fully functional.
It is being sold at a discount because there is one point of fungus (about 3mm in diameter) on the inside of the front element group. Testing on a Sony a7 has shown no impact to images, but it is not perfect and so is being discounted.
This lens is in excellent condition mechanically. The body is in great cosmetic condition.
The glass elements are free of balsam separation, haze, scratches, and cleaning marks. The aperture blades are free of oil and actuate perfectly. The focus ring spins nicely, and the aperture ring clicks into its detents with precision. The filter threads are perfect.
This telephoto lens offers incredible sharpness when stopped down, and produces amazing bokeh and subject isolation when shot wide open. The fast aperture allows for excellent low-light capability, and the lens is a master at available-light portraiture.
Naturally able to mount to any universal screw mount camera, such as those made by Pentax, Practica, etc., this lens can also be easily adapted to modern digital cameras through the use of inexpensive adapters. If you'd like to know if this lens will work with your camera or you'd like a recommended adapter, contact me and I will happily help.
This lens will be shipped immediately and packaged securely.
