Thanks Albert
I was hoping that more users would give some input, but maybe very few own or have used this lens

The only down side I have had with the M version, which should be virtually identical to the K version, is that in extreme backlight, there is quite a bit of red fringing that has to be post processed out. I can live with this until the new 400/1.4 DA* comes out.

I have the TeleTakumar 400mm f5.6, I think its the same optical formula. Happy with it but for a bit of CA as reported by Canada Rockies.
Its my least used lens, but thats because M42 lenses are not easy to use.

I have a K400 5.6, but haven't used it for a very long time now, it's a big and heavy beast. Bought a small and light sigma MF 400 5.6 with IF and a KA mount on local ebay in Sweden, easy to use with the K10D in AV mode.
