The lens:

SMC Takumar 55mm F2 lens. It's a unique performer.

The camera:
A really nice, sturdy, and good camera body for M42 lenses.
Unlike the Zenits or Prakticas from that era, this is really another perspective. As much as I love Prakticas, Zenits and socialist stuff, we have to admit that everything in that era was cost-saving and workaround for that part of the world.

This Pentax is built like a tank. It can do 1s to 1/1000 exposures, takes M42 thread mount lenses. Has a built in light meter.

I've never seen a bright viewfinder light this.

One feature I really like about this camera is the film advance lever. It's subtle design.

If you have any questions, just feel free to send us a message.
