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.

It might be worth to mention that the Ia, IIa and IIb also were found in the US under Tower 23 and Tower 24 names.

Hi Bosse,
There is very little evidence to support that the m42 versions were made by Asahi Opt. Company but more evidence that these were made by resellers.
