    $225 Shipped to within USA.
    ....Recently overhauled and CLA's and has a custom M42>m4/3 adapter included...

    This is a Rare Lens:.. this is a early version, 2 element coated, Rack/Pinon Focus, the M42 mount is uncommon
    , the Exacta mount was the original, then the Practica m42 became popular with the Pentax gaining a popular following.
    I have had this professionally Cleaned, Adjusted, Re-Lubed with modern lube, and the f/stop blades re-installed (all 16 of them... Great Bokoh at any f/stop!), Then I bought a m42>m4/3 adapter that Bob (From "CameraRepairs.com") adjusted for Proper INF mark.

    ADDED INFO:
    It weights around 40oz of liquid weight.. (I emptied Milk out of a Gal jug until it weighted about the same, and I poured that in a measuring bowl... 40oz.. 2.5lbs?), but is all medal, If you hand carry it, you sling it over your shoulder or let it hang straight down from your neck strap.
    I have hand held all but the 1st 3 sample photos.The 1st 3 where on a Tiltall Mini, others around f/5.5 to f/8 at ISO 800 on my just sold G1)

    The Maker is "Piesker"
