Lens for sale: Asahi Preset Takumar 135mm/3.5 M42 (model 1957)

I’m selling my Asahi Preset Takumar 135mm/3.5, model from 1957 with alu-parts.
It is very pretty and nice to photograph with, but I’m almost afraid to take it in case I would damage it, because it is in very good condition – as you can tell from the images. I guess you can see it is not new, but it is not far from it. Since I need the money I’ve decided to only keep the lenses I really use to photograph with.
Lens cap (at least the front is original) and hard case is included.
Price: $85 or £55 or €65 or 600 SEK.
Add shipping from Sweden (example about $20 to US, probably cheaper to EU) to the price.

  1. Hi
    Is the 135mm lens aviable?
    I’m interested to compare it with 10.5 and 13.5cm Nikkor-lenses from 59′ (between tick-mark and serie-production).
    best regards
    Andreas
