Pentax A* 645 600mm f5.6 with Accessories

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax A* 645 600mm f5.6 with Accessories

Asking Price
2,600.00 USD

Item Location
Arizona (United States)

Item Description
For sale is my Pentax 645 A* 600mm f5.6.

Lens includes:
  • Front 128mm Pentax protective filter
  • Standard filter drawer
  • Really Right Stuff lens plate
  • Lens cap
  • RARE drop in circular polariser with case and cloth
  • Pentax 1.4x teleconverter
  • Pelican case
  • Lens strap

Glass is in excellent condition. Lens body is in good condition, no dents but does have minor rub marks and scratches to the paint. Focus is smooth and limiter functions as it should. Works flawlessly on my 645D and has delivered many amazing photos. The telephoto lens on a medium format body whether film or digital produces a look that can't be matched by smaller formats. However, with a 645 to K adapter (or even to a Nikon or Canon mount for that matter) would produce great results; would be a fine compliment to that FF 35mm body when it arrives.

This lens model is one of the best examples of Pentax's devotion to professional outdoor photography with medium format; an absolutely legendary lens. The ergonomics of the lens are outstanding from the top handle, to the smooth focusing, the detail of the double extending/collapsing built in lens hood. The drop in circular polariser is a absolute must which is a superb aid to contrast when deal with glarey conditions such as deserts or rock landscapes. While the lens takes some practice to gain full performance from it specifically on moving wildlife; when it works out you will be in love and in awe.

I am sad to sell it as I will regret it someday. But my photographic subject material has changed since. Recently and in the near to mid future I don''t foresee much wildlife or telephoto landscapes. As a result I am selling it for somebody else to get use out of it and so I can apply the funds onto other projects.

I also can offer up my Really Right Stuff series 4 carbon finer tripod (TVC43) with Arca Swiss B2 head. This is an absolutely fabulous tripod and head to use with the lens. The tripod is incredibly sturdy and vibration free; extends to 63" or down to ground level and very lightweight for the size. I sold my Gitzo to upgrade to this. Really Right Stuff has put significant thought from an ergonomics and reliability standard producing some of the finest tripods. The ball head has an extremely high load rating insuring trouble free use and excellent vibration control and stability. The key to a great tripod on long lenses is insuring the load capacity for exceeds what weight you will place on it. The B2 is a double ball head; that is each direction of movement is controlled by its own knob. You can roll without pitch or yaw; you can pitch and roll without yaw, etc. Tripod includes a fantastic designed Really Right Stuff bag.

If purchasing the tripod with the lens I can offer you an excellent package deal. Tripod cost would be $1599 when combined. I will only sell the tripod separately after the lens has sold.

Prices are negotiable but don't send low ball offers as I won't respond. I am not interested in trades unless you have a very good condition 1982 Mercedes 300CD . Send me a PM with any questions, comments, etc.

I think (at least speaking for myself) it's because folks are simply gobsmacked viewing the photos of this lens.

Fantastic lens at a great price. Perfect compliment to any 645 kit or for somebody with any 35mm body.

I'd love to be able to make a reasonable offer. I'm so broke I can't even make an unreasonable one.

I really need to buy some lottery tickets...

Thanks; however, I don't think the lottery is the answer.

Just another bump. Seems pretty dead out there. Did nobody get a tax return even?

Bump. Remember you can also adapt to any 35mm system. Good investment prior to the Pentax full frame.
