Hi Paul,Very rare. Not many are sold. A bad copy was sold a while ago for 1000$. Yours could double that - to the right buyer. How on earth did you get two?
I Have 2 spectacular copies (almost flawless) of the Asahi Pentar K cameras with matching auto Takumar lenses, cases and lens caps. Any idea on value? Thanks!
Hi,The SuperTakumar 50 1,4 of '64 had a protruding rear glass. Asahi changed the mirror box of the SV to allow the new lens, and the green R shifted to red.
Hi,There are two S-models on eBay at the moment. They are for sale for around 1000$ with either one rare lens or more lenses. Price depends on condition.
