If you're looking for a LONG fixed tele, look at what I saw at KEH...

I found this on the in-transit list at KEH.com:

Pentax Auto Focus
600 F4 SMC FA ED INTERNAL FOCUS (150/49 DROP-IN) WITH FILTERS, 35MM SLR AUTO FOCUS SUPER TELEPHOTO L

KEH Camera: Pentax Auto Focus

If you're interested, click the little "email" button beside the listing and fill in your email address and they'll email you once they have it and are ready to sell.

I like contributing to other peoples' LBA.

Get thee behind me, Satan. I have drooled over the 600/4 for more years than I can count.

I hope that you get it Albert

I'd take a number, and budge in front of everyone, if I could afford it.



Edit,
If you like screwmount I see that they also have a 500mm f4.5 Super Tak in transit.

Interesting. But are we suppose to know what the price will be? Sure, I know someone who would like a 600mm F4 FA lens but at what cost?

Cool lens - not so cool price.
One to try out in store and then put right back on the shelf...

Being a Sigma 500/4.5 APO owner this lens looks very tempting. I know it's a great one, but I think I'll stick with my Sigma and converters for now. It would have been nice to own my dream lens, but what would be left if I had no dreams anymore

You could always loan it to me, and dream of the day you get it back

Either that or not loan it to me, and dream of what some of my photographs would look like through it

Sometimes it can take a very long while for an "in transit" lens to make it to KEH. There has been a Kiron 105 macro that has been "in transit" at KEH since early June! And a FA* 28-70 F2.8 that was "in transit" for about 2 months, and then suddendly was "We are sorry but the FA* 28-70 is no longer available" without ever being available. Methinks it got sold on eekbay for a better price and never got sent to KEH.

NaCl( "in transit" does not necessarily mean "available soon" )H2O
