Pretty cool on the same day my Minolta MC W Rokkor 35 2.8 came so did this. Very Happy
I didn't have much of a picture to go off of but I knew what it was.
It is in at least ex+ condition. I will post pictures of the lens later. A thunderstorm is comming up so I ran outside and snapped off a couple quick pics.
Fujitar 35 2.5 at 2.5. Only PP is a slight contrast boost. Lens is in Exakta mount so I was handholding inside my M42 adapter. Shot is on my 10D.

Here are a couple quick pics of the lens. A few small paint chips on the rim but otherwise a very nice lens. Works perfectly. I just need to rig up a way to shoot with it where I don't get light leaks.
The Exakta EOS adapter is going to have to wait awhile.
Bought this one from my change jar. USD $5 + $5 shipping.

I also have the 135 f4.5 made by Fujita, but it is in Wirgar brand, not Fujitar.

Good catch, Walter. I have that lens labeled as Gamma Terragon. Got it for the same $$ as I recall.

Thanks, Bill.
I'd really like one of each. I still need the 35 3.5, and the 135 3.5.

The lens looks good but the photos missed on something. I dunno if it was focus, or compression when resized for web use but definitely not good enough samples to show off the quality of a lens in my opinion.

Oops, My Bad! Mine is the 3.5, not the 2.5. I should read more carefully.

I will repost shots at f2.5 hopefully tommorow.The Bokeh is a little wild at f2.5,but the bokeh calms down by f5.6.No PP on this shot.
For the second shot, the crop, please click on it to see the original.

Its the same as mine, no doubt about it. Dates to 1957-1960 probably.

There are others that are marked N.K.K. (among other things, but this is a makers name I think) that may be the same, other than minor differences.

Thank You. I thought I posted back a response. Embarassed
I still haven't bought an Exakata EOS adapter yet. So I still haven't shot much with it, but I'm looking foward too.

At the latest Camera swap meeting here in Vancouver I ran into a Fujitar 2.5/35mm, preset lens with an Asahiflex 37mm thread. It came with the same vintage M37 to M42 adapter ring. Unfortunately, this lens can't be focused to infinity mounted on my Fotga M42 to Sony E mount adapter. (I just ordered another M37-M42 adapter).
At first I thought that this lens was produced by Fuji optical, but after a brief search I learned that I was wrong!
Even though I didn't have full focusing range, I took this lens with my for a walk.
I think it produced beautiful, soft pictures with lot of flare and very nice bokeh

Here's another derivative to be added to the list; Optinar 35mm f/2.5. In this case it's on Exa/Topcon RE flavour. A nicely made and and weighty lens for it's size.

I have a Carsen 35/2.8 in Exakta mount that was my dad's that looks exactly the same, he used it on his Topcor R along with a Topcor 5.8cm f1.8 and a Carsen 135/2.8 that focuses the opposite direction that's made by Sankor(it's construction is not as nice as the 35mm lens). http://forum.mflenses.com/the-sankor-lens-thread-t67279.html

here's an interesting twist in this story: a soligor miranda (in miranda M44 screw mount!) wide angle 35mm f/2.8 in almost identical livery,



which i compared side-by-side with my M42 accurar (but forgot to take a picture of that):



jury seems to be out on who made the soligor, but perhaps it was fujita as well?

Soligor serial number ending in K might be Komura, because of the time period it was made, and Fujita usually marked there lenses. FT, FC,PC in white or red lettering.

my accurar copy has a serial that starts with FT, so that at least matches up
