Pentax SV

The Asahi Pentax SV from the 1960's: it is an S3 with delayed action-I got it from an Old Gentleman with lots of other screw Takumar lenses for £25!

It has the 55mm f1.8 Super-Takumar lens,with delayed action setting around the rewind knob. Some say this lens is 'Radio-Active' as it contains 'Thorium' in the glass and that is what makes the coating go 'yellow'.
