Asahi Pentax Takumar 35mm F/3.5 Universal Screw Mount M42 Prime Lens with Caps
Here we have an excellent condition Asahi Pentax Takumar 35mm F/3.5 auto/manual prime lens with both caps. The lens is in excellent condition and is ready to produce another lifetime of fantastic photos.
The aperture blades are dry and free of oil or damage. The glass elements are clean and free of haze, scratches, fungus, and balsam separation. The aperture ring clicks into its detents with mechanical precision and the focus ring spins with a perfectly weighted fluidity. The mount and filter threads are unmarred and perfect.
This lens will mate to any camera that uses the M42 screw mount. These include (famously) Pentax, Practica, and Zeiss Contax, to name a few.
This miniature standard focal length lens is ideal for many types of photography from landscapes to snapshots, street photography to architectural shooting. It is capable of resolving extremely sharp and detailed images, and the treated glass elements prevent flares, ghosts, and aberrations. Its surprisingly small size and lightweight design make it extremely convenient for travel and taking along as a backup lens.
As mentioned, this lens can be used on any universal screw mount camera (M42). It can also be mounted to today's mirrorless cameras (such as the Sony a7 or Fujifilm X-series) by way of inexpensive adapters. If you're unsure of whether this lens will mount to your camera or if you need help finding an adapter, just ask.
The lens will be carefully packaged and shipped immediately.
