Asahi Pentax Super Takumar 35mm F/2 Universal Screw Mount M42 Fast Prime Lens for Pentax, Contax, Pentacon, Practica, Etc with Caps and Case


Here we have an excellent condition Asahi Pentax Super Takumar 35mm F/2 auto/manual fast prime lens with caps, UV filter, and original case. 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 lens' extremely fast maximum aperture puts it in a rare class of 35mm lens, and makes it an ideal choice for low-light shooting in styles of photography that often require it, such as street photography and photojourno style shooting. 

The ultra fast aperture also allows for incredibly shallow depth-of-field, making this lens a master of bokeh and subject isolation. 

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.
