The Auto Takumar 35mm f.2.3 lens is a legendary lens, but it’s hard to find in good condition. This lens is highly recommended by many photographers. The lens is made by Asahi Opt. Co. and features a 0.8 Module follow focus system. The auto-focusing gear slides easily into the lens’ case and doesn’t need to be removed after use. It also comes with a lifetime warranty.
The Takumar lens was designed as a large, fast wide angle lens. It was available in two different forms – the manual Takumar and the semi-automatic Auto-Takumar. The manual form is the most common, while the semi-automatic Auto-Takumar lens was designed for overseas markets. Both versions had different naming styles.
