looks like KEH has reduced the prices on other Pentax lenses too. that FA 24-90mm zoom for $268 is quite attractive, and very nice prices on smc-F 28mm f/2.8 as well. Bargain-condition FA 77mm limited for $499 is sweet too.

SMC-F 135 2.8 is down over 100 dollars to 328 in EX condition. A couple of FA 28 2.8 lenses for 168 (no caps) and 175 sounds sweet as well. FA*24 in EX condition for 449 now. FA*300 4.5 is now 648 in BGN condition!

Honestly in a lot of cases I think they're just adapting to the market. The value of Pentax lenses has dropped, mostly because new lenses prices have dropped so much. I think also that with some lenses being so good like the new 16-85, people just feel less need for older lenses. So when you can buy stuff new and with a warranty, you end up going that way instead of the used market.

339... and 499 for the 500 5.6.

Of course if you go to keh.com and type pentax 500 in the search it will tell you that

I was actually asking if anyone is familiar with that lens since I'm not familiar with the description in KEH.

SMC Pentax 500mm F4.5 Reviews - K Prime Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database

It's a full manual lens (with stop down metering). It seems pretty decent, to be honest.

Thanks! Now I'm interested to see this on a Q body. I'll look for possible setup/images.

Pump the brakes here folks, you may be talking about 2 different lenses. The 500/4.5 is k mount and the 500/5.6 is a 6X7 medium format lens. The 500/4.5 has a different type of focus ring that actually moves the rear section of the lens and subsequently the camera back and forth to focus, essentially making it tripod bound unless you have 3 arms. The 500/5.6 will require an adapter, probably the OEM Pentax one with the outer lugs for the way this lens originally mounted to the 6X7 Pentax bodies. Both are going to produce mixed results, probably with a fair amount of purple/green fringe.

Thanks! It came today and it is a beauty. Almost unmarked, clear glass, MIJ with the original pouch. (Not a colored one but you can't have EVERYTHING). Sometimes KEH is the best.
