SMC Pentax 135-600mm F6.7 on eBay
Posted By: crewl1, 07-18-2012, 08:20 AM

The seller thinks it is broken because it doesn't have objectives near the mount.

This sounds normal for a long tele, I think.

Not my sale.

I think the seller is justified in thinking it's missing some glass. How many lenses go from aperture mechanism to film plane with no glass in between? (aside from Lensbabies and pinholes...)

Nikkor AF-S 300/4 is one, but I have no idea if is an exception or if there are a few others like that in the line-up.

This teleconverter is not compatible with the SMC Pentax-DA* 300mm F4 digital telephoto lens.

So there you have a list of all the Pentax lenses with recessed rear optics.

Here is another listing...

*Sale* Pentax SMC 135-600mm f/6.7 Convert to Nikon Ai mount Zoom 135-600 F6.7 | eBay

Note lack of glass...

Also note that this one was modded for Nikon...and the guy wants $1500.
