Sorry. Your message did not translate very well. Are you looking for a 500mm lens? For less than 10 units of some currency?

I understand Swedish and read the original text. He's searching for a 500mm lens that costs less than 10.000 (Swedish currency I guess, approx $1500 USD).

Kind regards

If it should be below 10 000 SEK, there are a lot of options, starting with the Sigma 50-500/4.5-6.6 (aka "Bigma"). There is also the cheaper 170-500mm (or 150-500mm) Sigma zoom, which is also not a bad option.

Also, a secondhand excellent condition Pentax K 500/4.5 would be a possibility (much cheaper indeed).

If manual focusing is fine, it will be easier to find a lens, than in AF. There are many 500mm catadiotric lenses (mirror lenses), some of which can be quite good (Tamrin 500mm, Sigma 600mm, Tokina 500mm) and are all well below your price limit.

If you would include 400mm, too, there are several Pentaxes, which are in your price range (starting with the SMC-A 400/5.6, which is a great lens, including the M 400/5,6) and the Sigma Apo 400/5.6, and other from Tokina as well. You could even consider an old (but gold) Novoflex rapid focus 400/5.6 T-Noflexar.

There are many, many choices.

don't also forget any of the high quality 300mm lenses made in the past, from tamron 300F2.8 to any of the various pentax K mount 300mm F4 lenses, combined with an SMC-F 1.7x AF TC

I use an SMC-300 F4 with the 1.7x and it gives excellent results, aside from some purple fringing and CA when shooting high contrast shots

See the attached link;

The Sigma 50-500 "Bigma" just went up to $1600. The older version was $1,000.

The 150-500 is $1,000. Got my eye on one of those but my wallet has yet to follow. (Have 2 new lenses on the way right now...)

Mirror lenses don't get a lot of love, but they have a long focal length, are lightweight, Some of the donut background can be minimized later.
