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.

Hi,
You are quite right. The vignetting disappears at 22, so it is usable from there on, but the maximum never exceeds 45. Thank you!
I will correct it. Bosse

Hi Eric,
I don't understand your phrase: "Recommended as a 22-60 wide angel on K-1, and as 16-45 on K-3 II." The focal length range remains the same.
