ASAHI PENTAX 50mm F4 Pre-set Macro -Takumar screw lens 1:1 ( Rare lens).

PLEASE NOTE:
THIS IS A UK BUYERS ONLY AUCTION.
I DO NOT POST TO OUTSIDE UK .
On offer is a quite rare ASAHI PENTAX Pre-set 50mm F4 Macro-Takumar lens.
This is the first version of the Macro-Takumar that Asahi Pentax supplied for the Pentax screw cameras.Unlike the later Macro-Takumars this first version allowed for 1:1 reproduction.The later Macro-Takumars with auto-diaphragm only allowed 1:2 reproduction ratio due to the limits set by the auto-diaphragm mechanism.
This lens is perfect for macro shots with both film and digital cameras (such as Micro 4/3rds,Nex and Samsung NX with the available adapters), and with the Pentax screw to Pentax bayonet adapter can be fitted to the later Pentax bayonet cameras such as (MX,ME-super,LX etc.) as well a the *ist and later Pentax digitals.
Digital users will find that the pre-set Macro-Takumar is much more preferable and easier for using with digital than the later auto-diapragm macro-lenses and benefits from the 1:1 reproduction ratio.
This lens is in perfect optical condition with no scratches on the lens elements,no fungus,no haze.
The barrel has a few cosmetic marks but for its age is in good cosmetic condition.In all I would rate this lens as 9/10.
This lens is quite sought after and rarely offered for sale.
