Peterqd, why not sure?

Peter Spotmatic, congrats, really looks like new!

Thanks Andreas! And here are my findings re: the yellowing. As you can see my V2's (S-M-C and Super) are definitely yellow while the 8-element Super-Takumar is completely clear. Also note that the S-M-C is slightly less yellow, so I'd say that age (combined with radiation?) indeed plays a role here.

Well, your discovery of the hybrid and the position of its IR mark gave me some doubts. But looking again, the white mark is over the number 4, not the IR mark, so I feel more sure it's an 8-element now. Smile
(Peter's confirmation helped a lot too!)

oh yes, the lens linked definitely looks like a "genuine" 8 element, and in great condition!
