The pictures I added are from the SMC Takumar, not the Super-Multi-Coated Takumar. As far as I know, the oinly difference is the rubber grip on the rings. Jens

    The lens I have, purchased in 1975, says: SMC PENTAX 1:1.8/55. It does not say TAKUMAR as in your picture. I’m interested in knowing the difference. Thanks. NS.

    The SMC designated coating was a later version of the “Super-Multi-Coated” version.
