I finally got it.

Love at first sight kind of feeling. Beautifully built and in a great condition, although later on I'll ask a question about the apperture blade movement from other owners of the lens.

I presume the lens you have was developed from  the Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 2.5/135 screw mount lens of the early 1970's. I still have mine (Serial 7576861). It is a "stellar" performer, even at full aperture as you can judge by this image of the region surrounding Antares I took in 1976 using Anscochrome 500:
