I have tried it on the moon, the lightness of the moon is sufficient for fast shutter speed. I'm not convinced O-GPS1 is able to compensate with such a long lens

Out of interest, have you ever tried it for astro work with the o-gps1?


I guess you'd need a lens like this... a Pentax sd 250-3000mm f12 apo

Question: is there any way to verify the approximate production numbers of they very exotic (and wonderful) pentax lenses. I've owned various Pentax white paint master pieces and often wondered???

Unfortunately (for me !) there is another copy of this lens on sale on the bay (located in London). The price asked by the seller is a little less than mine so I'm obliged to adjust to 10000 $ (USA) or 9000 euros - my offer includes an original Pentax 150 mm protective filter that the bay doesn't provide.

No interest on this lens ? I have put it on eBay and already have a fair offer, I expected it to go on this forum ?

Exceptional A* 1200 f8

Asking Price
9,000.00 EUR or 10 000 $ for USA

Item Location
TOULOUSE (France)

Item Description
You don't dream, it is a lens that you'll find once upon a lifetime. I think than not more than 12 copies have been made. Don't miss the opportunity to have this unique lens.
With the future Pentax Full Frame attached, it will be a killer.
I have had a lot of fun with this lens, but cause of job cuts in my company, I'm obliged to sell it, which is a pity.
The lens is in excellent condition, there is absolutely no scratch on front element, which is anyway protected by an original 150 mm Pentax filter.
There are very little marks on the paint.
With good technique, this lens is able to deliver absolutely outstanding pictures; no comprison with an FA*600 + 2X converter.
It is provided with :
Its original Pentax aluminium case.
An arka-swiss plate
A complete set of camo and protections - see picture - mandatory for wildlife, as this giant lens is very visible instead.
Front and rear pouches
Drop in B+W UV+Haze filter
I have taped the handle to improve handling and avoid any accidental drop, the lens is heavy.







An example of a picture I made with it. Camera is K5iis, f11, 1/400, iso500 - winter light conditions

And a crop

For years..........

For years, I have been waiting for a lens like this. Finally, it is here, and I do not have the strength of 30 years ago to carry that monster, and much less focus manually.

Hi Pepe,
look like you are a yound man on the picture
To carry it I use a manfrotto tripod bag, easy to carry like that. The original aluminium case is definitively not practicle.
Regards

Best of luck with the sale.

There! Now, one day, I'll be able to tell my future grandchildren that I once posted in a thread that had a Pentax A* 1200 f8 for sale in it. Wow!
