Just in case anyone is interested and local. I popped into Manchester city centre yesterday and stopped by the Real Camera Company at the back of Piccadilly. I have no connection with them, I just pop by from time to time to see what's interesting in Pentax glass. They had one I've never heard of before, a Takumar 105mm f2.8.

The reviews on the US forum mention this as an M42 lens, but pretty sure this was a K mount version. They seemed to want around 80-90 for it, comes with a nice metal hood. I eventually concluded it was too close to what I had already, but mention it on here 'cos its rare and someone may be interested.

Didn't have a detailed look so proceed at your own risk. If interested and local, best to give them a ring to check still available and go down to check it out.

Cheers all.

The Takumar 105/2.8 is not especially rare. It's quite a nice lens and that's a decent price for one in very good condition.
