Item Description
Background: I recently acquired several 645 format lenses and film cameras and have been selling them off to those of you who will most appreciate (and use) them. I have saved this lens, the “Grand Daddy of Them All” and several related items (see other listings) for last. All were recently purchased as a package from a seller who acquired the collection from an estate. Clearly the items were very well cared for by the original using owner.

Pentax A* 600 F/5.6: Glass has no signs of scuffing, scratches, haze, fungus or delamination. Minimal internal dust – I think less than typical for an “A” generation used lens. Snappy aperture blades with no signs of grease or oil. Body is in great shape. Built in hood works flawlessly with smooth threads in both retracted and extended modes. Cosmetic issues are almost nonexistent as can be seen in the photos. There is some scuffing of paint on the bottom of the tripod foot as can be seen in one of the photos. The focus ring makes a slight resonant sound/feel when turning it, almost like running your fingernail over woven cloth. It is nothing alarming (no grinding, catching, etc.) or problematic in use, but I feel obligated to mention this issue to provide full disclosure.

49mm Filter Holder: Fully functional. Please note that this does not have the thumb wheel for adjusting CPLs like is sometimes seen for filter holders.

Pentax Front Cap/Cover: Has some staining of the leather surface which is visible in the photos provided. Inside felt is uniformly good except for one spot approximately 2mm in diameter on interior face which is visible in one of the pictures below.

Pentax Rear Cap: Minor scratches.

Filter: Pentax SMC 128mm, made in Japan. Glass and metal ring blemish free. Threads good.













A couple shots taken with this lens attached to my K-1 via 645 to K mount adapter:



Below is a test shot taken wide open (f/5.6) with this lens attached to my K-1 via 645 to K mount adapter. Note that sign was angled away (vertical red stripe on pole is perpendicular to sign face), so slight variance in sharpness of sign face is due to varying distance from the focal plane. To see the full size image and more test shots at all apertures (all downloadable to facilitate your detailed examination), go to 645 A*600 f/5.6 Lens Test Shots - darylkottwitzphoto.
