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 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.
