You use it to photograph UV stuff. It's a rather rare lens. Probably created for forensic and scientific usage.

I was at a local shop about a month ago that had 2 Takumar 300 mm, and one 200 mm ( that one came home with me, $40, and in VERY good shape ) The 300's were in the $250 range if I remember correctly, and they both looked to be in good shape, and one of em looked damn near new...

Well, some people are born greedy or naive. That pricing is definitely something for the rich and famous.
