I wish I wouldn't have bought the Tak 500mm f5 2 weeks ago or I would buy this.

Photos can be resized can't they?
Pictures would actually help you sell this item. Just resize the pix to fit your MP quota.

Eds, I hope you won't be annoyed with me, but I did find a link where there is a picture of "your" lens. I became very interested so I Google'd it, trying to find a pic of what this monster, as you say, looks like.
I am posting the link below... let me know if you find this inappropriate and I will just remove the post.


For you guys who are interested:

Vivitar 120-600mm

I bought one from eBay (Adorama) about 3 months ago am well pleased with its performance.
The lens had a few knocks and when I got it it had some play in this area:
Attachment 50840

Later on I took it to a local optics specialist and he was able to fix it for $120.
Here are the pics at different focal lengths all the way from 120 to 600mm with a regular Fuji 200 ASA film. Be ready for tripod or at least 400 ASA at hand held. The photos were scanned at medium resolution. There are absolutely no photoshop improvements.
