They came with the Spotmatic F and the Asahi Pentax ES and ES II. These lenses were the only Takumars with a rubber coated focussing ring, all others were full metal. The optical construction was the same as the precursor types. Due to the change to the K-bayonet the rest of the M 42 lenses did not get the rubber coating.
    Thank you for that information. I was not aware of that!

    EDIT: I just went to look on the KEH site and see that there were 50mm/4 lenses with the rubber ring and "SMC Takumar" and 50mm/4 lenses with the metal ring marked "Super-Multi-Coated Takumar". Photo archaeology is such fun!

    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.
