Item for Sale
Tele-Lentar 600mm F8 (Selling Dad's Entire Collection)

Asking Price
390.00 USD

Item Location
Atlanta (United States)

Item Description
This is something you don't see very often! An almost new-in-box Tele-Lentar 600mm F8 in excellent condition. Includes original box, packaging, lens pamphlet, carrying case with zipper, and integrated hood. Mount is M42. NOTE: The Spotmatic and tripod in the pics are not included in the price (but I'm happy to sell them too).

It certainly is an excellent example of great mid-century industrial art

The lens was checked for any dust / fungus, and was attached to a K20 for numerous test shots. I probably don't need to say it's a bit awkward to use without a tripod!

The $390.00 Pricing includes US Domestic shipping. I'll probably pack the lens seperate from the origianl box to prevent further weakening of the box (the corners are starting to fail).

I'll work with anyone who would like to have the lens shipped internationally, but you pick up the extra shipping cost.

NOTE: I am sellling my Dad's entire Pentax & Takumar photography collection. There is too much to list. Please PM me with if you'd like to know what else I'm selling.

All payment must be received prior to shipping. I can take payment via PayPal, Venmo, or Check (US Banks Only). If you need to make special financial arrangements, just let me know and we can discuss options.

All lenses have been checked for obvious dust / fungus by fully opening the diaphragm and looking through them at a bright light. All lenses have also been put on a Pentax K20 and multiple pics were taken in manual mode (and auto-focus where appropriate).

Iím not a lens expert or a photographer, so that is all I could check. If I missed something technical and the condition is not what you were expecting, please reach out to me via email for resolution.

Please send me a private message if interested in the item!

Will all features of this lens work on a Pentax K-7?

Awkward handheld will be an understatement IMO. With the grip for focusing way too far back for balance a tripod is a necessity. You will not handhold it.

But I've seen a few shots taken with that lens and with proper technique it delivered really nice images, far sharper than I would have expected. Someone will enjoy having this one so good luck with the sale.

It's a preset lens in M42 mount, so it will need an adapter to fit a K7.

That said, assuming the aperture and focus are working, there aren't many 'features' to work... it manually focuses and has a manually actuated aperture (no auto-stop-down).

So maybe not super-easy on a K7, and certainly giving up things like autofocus and autoexposure... and 600mm is a long lens, as Gatorguy mentioned...

I have a 28mm Lentar in M42 that isn't bad...
