Long shot......but has anyone got one of these totally useless lenses that they need to get rid of? Razz

Not a K, but I have a Super Takumar version that I might be persuaded to part with. - I just bought its predecessor, the Auto Takumar 35 f3.5.
A gorgeous, tiny little thing... Smaller even than the already dimiutive Super Tak, K and M versions. I beleive they are all the same optical formula.

One drawback of these lenses, is that they are quite hard to focus, being rather slow and therefore dim.

Hi Kit,

Thanks for the offer, but it's specifically the K that I'm after, the reason being that I want lenses that I can more easily swap over in the field, so to speak. I've recently purchased a K55/1.8 to replace my Super Tak which is the only M42 lens in my locker.

Thanks again,

ds

I'll leave you one in my will. I can't tell you how long you'll be waiting.

That is very thoughtful and generous, Dr.

As it happens (and as you now know), I'll have to put any purchase of a K35 back a while as I've just well overspent my budget on a DA*300. I'll probably not be paid off on that until february 2013. So, if you snuff it before then I'll take you up on your very kind offer! Laughing
