OMG, it sold for $3258.00. I would have liked to see Tom Lusk or Marc get it and show us just what it's capable of.

Six kilogrammes of SMC glass. Wow. I am impressed, but did not bid, though. Still have to get used to my 300mm/2.8 first... Maybe a next time. Makes me wonder:

Is there no fund for Pentaxforums-members who want to fill in a gap in the lens-review-database? Maybe there should be. Then "the forum" could have bought the lens, review it and then resell again (or keep it). Then we would have known its work. Now it may take more than a year before another lens of this kind appears on the market!

My 0.02$ worth

Syb - the idea is fantastic - the execution of it would be just messy getting the money off the people interested then refunding it afterwards.

The hummingbirds wouldn't have a chance with that lens... LOL. I do love the images my FA* 300/2.8 produces, so I'm happy with it! Seriously, thank you for the compliment.

However, I just want an FA* 600/4....

Cheers,
Marc
