OKAY, I replied back and asked for some more pictures.

Here's what I got:

Sorry about pics being thumbnails. You can click em for the larger ones. For some reason when I put them on originally, they didn't auto resize.

An alternative to this would be a cheap mirror lens. Neither lens is going to have spectacular IQ, low light performance, etc., but very good 500mm lenses cost real money. A mirror lens is a more convenient size and weight.

I've been on Pentaxforums every day, as well as Kijiji and other local sites looking around. I guess I'm just trying to buy more and more and more, even though my wallet is .... empty. I need to get a job soon, haha.
Well, I'll get to the point.
You can see in my signature all the lenses I have so far. Not a great collection, and I've been wanting to add a decent AF zoom to it, as well as a huge MF zoom to break out the tripod and try to get some nice shots. (haha, tripod, try... don't know why I found that funny...)
Anyways, on Kijiji, I found a:
'Telephoto 450 mm SOLIGOR lens with a Pentax mount'
The info says
' 450 mm 1:8 Excellent condition!! Still in original box. Very seldom used. '
And the listed price is $60.

So, any comments on this lens at all? Anyone even heard of it or seen it before?
I'm not sure whether or not to even look at it.

Your thoughts?
Yo tengo ese lente, es muy buen lente por ese precio, en lugar de escribir mi opinión, solo hazte tu propia opinión mirando fotos tomadas con él

Están indicadas las fotos tomadas con ese lente.

Es realmente lento y no muy nìtido en f8. Pero si lo usas en f11 (si, f11, más lento aun) obtendrás fotos impresionantemente nítidas con un lente que cuesta menos que la correa de tu cámara
