Item Description
One of the worst kept secrets in photography is how much fun you can have with an inexpensive long telephoto lens.
This is the Tamron-made 400mm f6.3 that was sold under many different labels. This particular one is an Optoplex.

Here's what it can do with the moon: Optomax 400mm f/6.3 (Moon Shots)

Here's what it can do with a bird on your feeder: Optomax 400mm 6.3 | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

How's that for a sub-$100 lens?

This is a manual focus, m42 (screwmount) lens so it can work with a variety of cameras with the proper mount. It's particularly easy to use on a Pentax DSLR.

(it is the longer lens in the photo above. The other lens is listed by me separately, also in Marketplace. I'd be happy to combine shipping.) Condition is very good. Just a couple of small/light cosmetic nicks/wear on the slide out hood (which is handy). Aperture blades are snappy and oil-free. Optics clear!

Get yourself 400mm of fun for $79 plus shipping. Will be happy to ship worldwide. PM me for a quote.
