SMC Pentax 1000mm F8.0 Lens

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
SMC Pentax 1000mm F8.0 Lens

Asking Price
695.00USD (Price change from $825)

Item Location
Coquitlam, BC (Canada)

Item Description
This is one of the “legendary” Pentax K mount lenses and is aptly named the “Black Dragon”, although in this case it is in disguise .

SMC Pentax 1000mm F8 Reviews - K Prime Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database

This lens is clean cosmetically and functions well. I used it for a specialized application and had it covered with a custom LensCoat cover set Pentax Covers - LensCoat so that it would maintain its’ “collectors” value. It has original front and rear caps as well as a camo "snoot" front cover.

I have since acquired an SMC Pentax-M*67 800mm F6.7 ED (IF) with a matched 1.4X Extender, so this one is looking for a new home.

With all lenses of this size it requires a very sturdy tripod and good “long lens” technique.

The lens is 11 pounds, but with the case and packing it will weigh slightly more than 20 pounds. I will provide a quote for shipping.

As long as you don't mention prices, bobbtron, you're fine with general comments.

I have one too. Nice lens.

It comes with the LensCoat covers as they sure would not fit anything else!

The ideal street photography lens for the discerning photographer who likes to be far, far above the street in question!

Generally that's referred to not as street shooting but street sniping. LOL.

At one end you have this mounted on an LX or K2-DMD with all the add ons, 250-shot magazine back, winding motor, remote trigger, etc. etc. etc.; at the polar opposite extreme, you have someone who takes an ME with the 40mm M pancake right up to the subject and snaps a single frame that makes the cover of National Geographic.

Companion for the SMC Pentax 500mm F4.5

Hey Paul,

This would be the perfect companion for your 500mm lens, sort of like "big brother-little brother", and since this is the longest lens Pentax ever made yours would be bigger than everyone!

Hak Lung!

Don't let the vintage fool you: I can attest that that lens is some serious optics.
