[ACQUIRED] Pentax K PK 135-600mm f6.7

I'm appealing to any photographer cleaning out their closet and selling unused, older gear.

I'm trying to find a Pentax K mount 135-600mm f6.7 lens (bazooka!!) It looks like it would be an incredible addition for a new photographer (ME!). Glass must be clean with no haze, fungus or scratches. Aperture blades must be oil free. Above all, the price must be reasonable!! With husband retiring, I cannot afford to be gouged.

Thanks for your consideration. Have a great day.

I think this is a reasonable deal for one: Asahi Pentax SMC Zoom 135-600mm 6.7 M42 Canon EOS EXC | eBay

Looks like 950 + 105 shipping. It's only been up a few hours, I expect it will go pretty quick.

Hope this helps!

Looks like it has the m42 screw thread on the back but comes with a K adapter. I dont think you'd be able to find the K mount housing anywhere, so you might want to wait for one with a K mount, but obviously you could use it with the included k mount adapter.

You could, based on the other auction, offer the seller that has one up for $1950, the same price to buy theirs. SMC Pentax Zoom 6,7/135-600mm Pentax K Canon Eos | eBay

Thanks Clinton. I saw it too and came here to check the database, ratings and marketplace for one cheaper. My research showed it's a great lens, but has sold for considerably less. With my husband retiring, $1055 is way to much for me to spend on a lens..can't do it. I also became aware of the Vivitar 120-600 f5.6-8. That one would be a consideration too, if the price was right.

I acquired a Vivitar 120-600 for a great price. I'm happy!
