Super Takumar Lenses - Errata

I had neglected to do my homework with respect to what I wrote about the Super Takumar 35mm lens in my previous post. This error was pointed out by a group of readers on Flickr. In actuality, "Super" and Super multi-Coated (SMC) were used by Pentax with the following distinctions:

Takumar: manual aperture, single coating
Super-Takumar: automatic aperture, single coating
Super-Multi-Coated Takumar: Multi-coated Super
