Third parts 500mm f/8 (optical)

Hi,
I'm looking for an affordable lens 400mm or 500mm, f/6,3 or f/8.
I know there are several on ebay or forums with T2 and k-bajonett adapter for Pentax cameras like mine (K20D).

For example:
Hanimex 400mm f 6,3
Quantaray 400mm f 6,3
Dorr (Danubia) 500mm f/8

What do you think, it's worth it ?
Any suggestion ?

Thanks.

The one on the top left looks EXACTLY like my Prinz Galaxy 400mm. Not the best lens but it works quite well and you can have some fun and learn a lot with it. Just to show that they are not a complete waste of time as many people will tell you, here is a picture I took with mine:


I don't realy know what it's worth but if like me you can't justify the costy of a good 400mm f/5.6 then it definately worth a try as long as it is not too expensive.

Thanks.
I think it was more luck than judgement but it goes to show that even some of these cheep lenses can give satisfying results.
