645 300mm on a Pentax DSLR is still a 300mm.
Still a FF 300mm, but cropped on the current line-up of Pentax K-line cameras.

The older Pentax 67 400mm f/4 lens is still a stellar performer. I use it adapted to my Nikon D700 and at f/5.6 it is sharp, contrasty, and has little to no CA anywhere. I have used it on my Pentax 67 but I haven't been able to test it thoroughly enough to say anything for sure - but it looks good so far.

The great thing is a number have been showing up on ebay for $600-$900. Not bad!

I was EXTREMELY lucky and got one for $75 - but with a huge fungal infection. Got it cleaned and all for $135 or so - and it's beautiful.

I think I paid around 250 euros for my copy -no fungus :-)
