Something of interest on ebay right now.
Posted By: Auzzie-Phoenix, 11-05-2014, 08:17 PM

I just ran across this listing by a florida salvation army store on ebay:

Takumar 1 4 5 500 Made in Japan by Asahi Opt Co | eBay

Huge zoom lens. Hasn't been bid on yet as of this post.

That's a really really sharp lens. Does suffer from CA, though.

wow, it should end up at a reasonable price... CA can be treated in PP, so for low budget it's interesting!

Someone should put this on a Q. Imagine you could go birding in another state and never leave your driveway.

Not long enough, I put a 1250mm lens (telescope) on my Q the other night. That gave me a 7000mm equivalent.

But it was cloudy
