Takumar: The Eye of Asahi Pentax:

When starting producing the Asahiflex waist level slr cameras in 1951, Asahi Optical named the new lenses Takumar. This name was to be worldknown as high quality lenses through the M 37 and, above all, the M 42 screw mount period, lasting till the K mount was introduced in 1975. From then on the lenses got the same name as the cameras: Pentax.

Takumar, Macro-Takumar, Tele-Takumar, Auto-Takumar, Super-Takumar, S-M-C Takumar and SMC Takumar lenses came in many versions from 17mm to 1000 mm. In my collection at the moment are some 60 lenses from 20mm to 500 mm.

Wow, I wish it was me who just "picked up" that one! May I ask from where? About how rare: Read more about it under Asahi Pentax 1957-64.

I picked up a 'Penta Asahiflex H2' serial#230415, seems in pretty good condition with a couple of lenses and accessories. Apparently these are rare?

Hi,
Honeywell was the US distributor and had their name on the cameras until Pentax established its own US-office. H3v was identical to Asahi Pentax SV. Thanks!

Hello,
Great site! I don't see my Honeywell Pentax listed here. It was my first SLR that I bought it used in the late 1960's. Model H3v, any info?
