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.

Takumars/Auto/Super came with either black on white or white on black.The few reports of any other colour come from post production homework.Probably yours too.

The only Super Takumar lens that couldn't be used on the SV was the 50/1,4, as the rear could touch the mirror. A later version of the SV solved this problem.

Maybe I'm wrong. If so, please let me know, as I'm seeing some confusing info on various forums about this issue.
