SPIRATONE 500mm f/8 MINITEL Mirror Lens with Hood Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
SPIRATONE 500mm f/8 MINITEL Mirror Lens with Hood

Asking Price
30.00 USD

Item Location
San Rafael, CA (United States)

Item Description
For sale - SPIRATONE 500mm f/8 MINITEL Mirror Lens, with front and rear caps, and hood.

I'm starting to purge my LBA collection of miscellaneous lenses, starting with my largest and least used lens. This lens is in excellent shape, both aesthetically and mechanically. There is no haze, no fungus, and no scratches. Obviously, as a mirror lens, this is not going to be the sharpest lens in anyone's tool box but I have to say it does a pretty decent job as mirror lenses go. And it's a fun lens to mess around with.

Can we see more example shots? Does it cover FF image area for K-1?
Unless it's already gone to its new home...

As the owner of one of these, I can state that it is a nice and sharp mirror lens. If I did not already have one, I would snatch this one up!!

(BTW -- I paid 3x this for mine with case.)

A few shots ...
