Pentax 800mm ?
Posted By: jatrax, 12-16-2013, 08:37 AM

There are currently 5 different Pentax M 67 800mm lenses for sale on ebay. All supposedly from different sellers.

Here's a link to one: RARE SMC Pentax M M 67 800mm F 6 7 800 f6 7 Ed If Lens for 6x7 67II II 0027075003408 | eBay

Not mine, and I'm not interested. Just things that make you go "Hmmmm...."

Have not seen one for sale in maybe forever, and now there are 5 at one time? How does that happen?

That is the same thing that always happens to me when I put something on eBay that is the only one listed and none sold in recent history. I think there are people waiting around for someone to set a price before they put theirs up.

They always seemed to be BIN'd for about this price. I would like to see one in an auction to see what the going price really is. I'd like to try the lens too and see what it is capable of.

Someone needs to test that lens on a Q with the K-Q adapter.

There is also always a flood of stuff put up for sale at holiday time each year, whereas summer and autumn are slow periods for vintage stuff...

Before that there were a few 600/4 takumars for sale, now there is nothing. Although in that case it may have been just two actual lenses, one in Germany and one in Hong Kong that were listed in multiple countries at different times and thus showed up more than once in any search.

If people are paying the BIN, then that is the going price. Q.E.D.
