I think KEH has or had one for 1700.00 ish....

Pentax 6x7 600 F4 SMC TAKUMAR (REAR MOUNT 77) WITH CAPS, CASE, MEDIUM FORMAT SLR MANUAL FOCUS SUPER TELEPHOTO LENS - KEH.com

$1799 to be exact, that is an attractive price to see what it is capable of.

It's too bad its only good on film or BW.
The color registration issues from digital sensor takes the fun out of it.

Maybe this is what desertscape is talking about in his review of the lens and its failure to correct for abberations?

From the very little shooting that I've done with it (ie from my backyard ) it seems to be an issue up to f8. Even then I only saw it in the typical high contrast situations - dark things against the sky.

Will try to get it out soon and post some samples in the 300+ thread.
