That's a great price for an 800mm f4.

one of the best and only super telephoto lenses for 67 format .the one in the pic is the first version, and it suffers from some LoCA. The more recent iteration (which I have the most experience with) it's's at least a foot longer and features two ED elements negating all aberrations. it has a dedicated teleconverter which makes it a 1600mm f/11 lens or in 67format, 800mm.
