Asahi Optical Co. Takumar 500mm f/4.5-45.0

This lens continous in production without any changes optically or mechanically (manual aperture) along the M42 life span and was later released as the Super-Multi-Coated Takumar. Other than the SMC coating, and the obvious engraving and name, nothing has changed between the 2 different versions.

Filters for this lens are added via a removable tube in the back of the lens.
