Where to get older 500mm + lenses

Hi All,

I do a lot of bird photography and as such would love to get my hands on some of the older super telephoto lenses.

Can anyone recommend any second hand suppliers?

Thanks!
Gordon

Buy & Sell New & Used Cameras ? Canon, Nikon, Hasselblad, Leica & More - KEH.com

My personally preferred source apart from the obvious: ebay...

Gordon, if you do a search for KEH (you must add something like "experience" to the search, as you can't search for only 3 letters...) you'll find many very positive posts - not only here, but basically on any photographic forum. (That probably does not rule out the odd dissatisfied person.)

Gordon, Adorama is selling a 6x7 600/4 lens with K adapter for a very reasonable price. ...even the 800/4 they're selling is a reasonable price. But that 45 lb beast is anything but easily transportable when you want to go birding.
