It is an M42 Super Takumar lens. Great lens if you get one without oil on the aperture blades. This one had oil on the blades as stated by the seller on Ebay. I used rubbing alcohol to remove the oil but there is still some there and the blades still hang up more than I would like. A good one with the old caps can get expensive if it is in like new condition but they are sharp as tack lens and will allow a lot of crop before losing the sharpness.

These are wide open (read above post). It still need some interior cleaning and I will do that before the summer is out.

I took them right after a rain shower so the bug powder would not be as prevelant. Thanks for looking in...And I agree it is a sharp lens now but can be sharper with a little inside cleaning.

Hey Dawg !!

What ever madeyou decide to take apart a lens to repair/ clean it??

I am pretty handy with tools & have a pretty well equiped shop..How hard is it to do what you described above??

How much risk is there in what you have done??

Do you have some kind of specific or generic manual that you use to guide you??

I'm kinda interested in trying to learn what you've done for preventative reasons, if for no other reason..

Any info will be appreciated!!
