Looking for a 500mm Pentax Lens?

If I wasn't broke, this would already be gone!

Pentax 500MM Lens

Please note, I do not know the seller!

Sorry - I missed the Price Watch Section when I was looking where to post this, but it's too late, it's gone!


I'll be eating crackers for the next six months.....


(Yes dear, I did buy it. No dear, I'm not crazy - honest!)

It is a classic 4 elements, 4 groups construction, isn't it?

IMHO, this isn't enough anymore for today's small pixel pitch sensors. Better use a DA*300 and crop.

The only 11 elements 500mm K-mount lens under $1000 I am aware of is the manual focus Sigma 500/4.5 APO. But it seems to be extremely rare on the used market. It is also rare enough that Adam didn't give it a record in the lens database.

Only one bid and 600 $ including shipping, doesn't seem to expensive.
