The 500/5.6 is one lens I would love to try, great pickup. Should be fun to use, post some picture when you get a chance!

I have :-). I wrote the only review there is of this lens in the review section of this forum. I have tried it on the K-5, 645N and 67 II. The focusing ring is a bit stiff, and as I said the lens is heavy, but otherwise I like it a lot. Here are some more from the 67 II:

One other "sleeper" lens to consider is the 6x7 Takumar SMC 400/4
Agree Phil--- There is a world of difference between the 300 and 400 Takumars. The 400 has a 12 blade diaphragm, a tripod foot, is slightly sharper, better contrast, more accurate DOF scale but on the negative side, is outer bay and rear filters can cause internal reflections.

Good stuff, I had missed your review of the 500mm lens, very helpful!

I have seen a few for sale, but the new for me 95mm filter size, stopped me from getting one. ( I already have too much invested in 67/77/82mm filters!)
