More rationalisation! This one is a bit of a rarity, you can find these on ebay etc., but this example is in absolutely pristine condition, looks like it has hardly ever been used; no external damage, no scratches, no fungus, no oil on blades, everything works beautifully.

It is an early Takumar 200mm F5.6 Pre-set version (later models were called Tele-Takumars) and has the lovely 10 rounded blade aperture at the front of the lens. These pre-set Taks are a joy to use in AV mode on a digital SLR. Comes with a free UV filter, original metal hood, fitted K-mount adaptor (spring clip removed) so you can use it just like a bayonet lens, front and rear caps (not original). I think this lens dates from the early '60's so it is in remarkable nick for a piece of this vintage. Takes very sharp images at all apertures, contrast and colours are also pretty remarkable for a lens of this age. 48 including RMSD.

I can vouch for all that. As David knows I have the identical lens and I'm not parting with mine

Thanks Dave I'm very reluctant to sell this one as I don't think I'd find another like it, but I've spent a bit lately on a new laptop, so it's time to move it on.
