See here SMC PENTAX -A * 600mm f5.6 ED IF super telephoto lens #499 | eBay - no idea about the reputation of the seller, but looks like a nice sample.

It makes me salivate but at this point I sure would love to see some shots from the upcoming da560/5.6 and its street price before thinking seriously about this one. I was spoiled by the a*400/2.8 and will find it hard to accept less.

says it has haze and no return option, makes me a little skeptical.

I think there are quite a few people waiting for some hard data on the DA 560, particularly regarding price. But given the recent pricing events, I'm not expecting it to be a loss leader. This particular A* 600 has too many red flags for my taste though. "Dusts, dirt, thin haze" doesn't inspire confidence.
