A* 1200/8 -- the ultimate Pentax rarity
Posted By: baro-nite, 03-10-2013, 05:41 AM

Very RARE Pentax A Star SMC 1200mm 1200 mm F8 F 8 Ed Lens | eBay

At US$8,000 I expect this one will sell fairly quickly.

That actually seems like a bargain for long glass like that, not that I'll ever be able to afford it. It's the Q and a 300mm for me.

If I buy it, do I have to carry it?

No. If you can afford to buy it, you can afford to hire someone to carry it for you.

A study in the effects of diffraction, but you'd have to give it a try.

I would actually love it for moon shots and other astrophotography stuff. Imagine Jupiter through it, or other planets, maybe a nebula or Andromeda too. On my K5 that is...

That's not a bad price, but I hate that I'd have to fork out a couple hundred bucks extra for a converter to get the reach I'm after.

My word I thought this was another one for sale, but it's the same as other thread started here on the 10th March.

It doesn't look like anyone bought it - I think the listing ran out.

It was only up for 3 or 4 days and IIRC the listing was for a month.
